Red Mountain Park 277 Lyon Lane 205-202-6043 redmountainpark.org BIRMINGHAM
Once upon a time, Red Moun- tain was the main source for the rich iron ore deposits that put Birmingham on the industrial map. Nowadays, it s home to a brand new four-and-a-half-mile park brimming with monuments of natural splendor and historic significance. Throw in a state- of-the-art zipline tour and a trail system that s heaven for walk- ers, hikers, runners and cyclists and it s no surprise that folks come from miles around to get in touch with the great outdoors. It s huge! You see something new
every time. It s basically impos- sible to be unhappy when you re there. Especially if you re on the zipline. Ashley R.

Serving as the supreme place to relive the magic of baseball s glory days, Rickwood Field is America s gem of a diamond. As the country s oldest ballpark, Rickwood became home to the Birmingham Barons in 1910 and today is treasured as a true slice of American history. The annual Rickwood Classic is always fun for baseball lovers such as myself. Plus, the field has so much history some of the best players have played on that field. Marcques R.
