Wednesday, May 8, 2024
8:45 AM - 12:00 PM

Hailed as “Birmingham’s Living Room,” Railroad Park provides a unique venue for local recreation, family activities, concerts, and cultural events, while connecting Birmingham’s downtown area with the historic Southside community and University of Alabama at Birmingham’s campus. On this tour, experience the 19-acre green space that celebrates the industrial and artistic heritage of the Magic City and learn about the projects that serve as economic catalysts through connectivity. Walk along the Rotary Trail while hearing about its transformation from an abandoned railroad right-of-way into a landscaped, multi-use pathway that connects residents to street-level destinations and provides venues for people to gather. Enjoy a visit to Rickwood Field, the oldest professional baseball park in the United States.
