With the Red Rock Ridge and Valley Trail System, Jefferson County has an unparalled opportunity to transform our community. The Greenway Master Plan will connect new green spaces with existing parks and neighborhoods to make our region a better place to live for future generations.
Over the past decade, Birmingham has made remarkable strides in developing new green spaces. We now have a chance to connect our existing parks into a great network of greenways. Red Rock will create a network of greenways that will make our communities healthier, safer and more connected. Obesity is a national epidemic, and Alabama has the second highest rate in the country.
Each mile of greenway creates an environment where healthy choices become easy choices.
Each mile of greenway in Jefferson County will be as unique as the neighborhoods
The Red Rock Ridge and Valley Trail System will create positive impacts for the physical, economic, environmental, and social well-being of the Birmingham Region, one mile at a time. Together, we can create a healthier, more connected community for everyone.
