(WIAT) — With summer temperatures beginning to come back, at least for a bit, it’s a good time to get outside and enjoy Mother Nature.
The Birmingham community can now do that at the new expansion at Red Mountain State Park.
On Thursday, the park held a ribbon cutting for the new activities opening with the expansion.
In includes a rope walk, a zip line and the Hugh Kaul Foundation’s Beanstalk Forest.
Birmingham Mayor William Bell says the activities provide a revenue base for the park, but they also create new adventures for families.
He adds that the expansion also provides new opportunities for physical fitness.
