The dirt is turned at Railroad Reservation Park site


A quick flick of the wrist was all it took to move the dirt at this morning’s groundbreaking ceremony for what many hope is the first of many stages for the Railroad Reservation Park in downtown Birmingham. The picture above shows local elected officials taking part in the ceremony, including representatives from the City of Birmingham and Jefferson County.


The second image shows members of Friends of the Railroad Reservation District, a group that has worked for several years towards making today’s event a reality.

Those wanting to find additional information about the current timetable for the park will find a link to a PDF document on the City of Birmingham’s website, or you can access it by visiting yesterday’s post via clicking here.


One more image for this Friday afternoon. This shows the city’s director of capital projects, Renee Kemp-Rotanm and the park’s project manager, HB Brantley, shortly after the conclusion of the ceremony. Both of these people have worked tirelessly to bring this current plan for the land to this point. We look forward to both of them and everyone else involved enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Enjoy the weekend.
