April exhibit highlights maps and drawings of parks

April 26, 2011

Parks can be appreciated from inside as well as outside, thanks to a special exhibit created as a tribute to Earth Day 2011 by the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham. RPC is working with Auburn University’s Urban Studio and other partners to set up an exhibit showcasing maps and graphic renderings of parks, preserves, greenways and other treasured landscapes throughout the agency’s six-county region (Blount, Chilton, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair and Walker Counties).

The Gateway to Greenspace Exhibit will feature many existing and planned projects, as well as ongoing initiatives related to land conservation, outdoor recreation, and active transportation such as bicycling and walking. The exhibit will be on public display through this Saturday, April 30, in the Frank Setzer Gallery located on the first floor of the historic Young and Vann Building (corner of 1st Avenue and 18th Street North). The exhibit is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Thanks to RPC for sharing more about our great outdoors!
