Visit the Park

Your Exploration Starts Here

Red Mountain Park is the site of one of the most ambitious and historically significant new park projects in America.

As the land that was once the site of extensive iron ore mining that built Birmingham, Red Mountain was the city’s greatest resource. Today, more than a generation removed from the closing of the last iron ore mine on its property, the 1,500-acre Park is quickly becoming a vital urban green space for a new generation in Birmingham, uniting us all on the path toward a healthier future. Explore the ways RMP can be one of your greatest resources today.
