Railroad Park, the first day of the rest of our downtown

September 17, 2010

Sit on the wall and watch the trains or turn around and see the whole park from the Rail Trail.

Railroad Park officially opened last night at a great event, complete with a band, butterflies and luminaries. Today at lunch it was filled with a great mixture of people, young, old, black, white, definitely not some set of “usual suspects” but all the great folks who find their way to downtown Birmingham during the week.

Saturday will be a great celebration, but every day is going to be special as newcomers and old-timers explore this special space. Check out this photo from the observation level on the rail trail. Your Community Foundation is so proud to be a small part of this, because everything we have comes from donors who cared about moving our community forward. What a great way to do that, here at Railroad Park!
