Several Birmingham mayors join together to announce Railroad Park

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The current mayor and former mayors of Birmingham came together on Monday to witness a major accomplishment in the city. They have all been a part of the planning of the Railroad Park.

A dedication ceremony for the Railroad Park is set for Thursday the 16th and a grand opening celebration will be on the 23rd.
     
Former Mayor Richard Arrington says the plans to develop this park began during his administration. "This project here is very significant...part of the greening of Birmingham," says Arrington. "It's part of what we were dreaming about."

Current Mayor William Bell says phase two of the Railroad Park project will include building an amphitheatre. Phase three would connect the park to Sloss Furnaces.
