Railroad Reservation Park

By Anna | 4 Comments »

Birmingham has an amazing new green space, the Railroad Reservation Park. The whole Birmingham centric internets is all aflutter about it, so I won’t wax too poetical about how amazing it is for our city and how it’s bringing people together and paving the way for a brighter future. But it really is too good too be true; beautiful, spacious, populated with all types of people, brilliant design. I LOVE IT!!

While on my commute home from work the other day I took a short detour just to ride the loop around and snap some pictures. It’s like 3 blocks from my house, praise ‘em.


Yesterday evening my companion and I were riding back from the last softball game of the season (go BNB!!!!) and saw a group of friends riding BMX in the bowls. We stopped, had a chat, chatted with other friends on a stroll who passed, and then continued our journey home to pizza (just to brag: homemade with tomato, fresh mozzarella, red bell peppers, serrano pepper, bacon, arugula & pesto, tomato, and fresh mozzarella ohmygoddelicious) and a movie.

Way to go Birmingham! I’m so excited to be a part of our continued downtown revitalization!

    Whoa, I didn’t know that the park had a bowl!?! I guess I might just have to dust off the old skateboard afterall.

    “Originally a flat four-block wasteland bounded by the railroad corridor and First Avenue South, the park’s terrain now rises and falls like the region’s hills and valleys.”
