We were hoping to get up a special section about the three parks initiative before any more announcements were made. The guys at Red Mountain Park decided to put a wrench in that plan (albeit a welcome one).

They’ve planned a public presentation of their Final Draft Master Plan by the park’s designers, Wallace, Roberts & Todd, to the park’s commission at 3 p.m. at Vulcan Park.

Granted its a little early to be heading out for a meeting, but it should give us a taste of what the plans are for this new project. The Three Parks Initiative, for those that don’t know, is a combined campaign jointly managed by the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and Region 2020 to raise money for Railroad Reservation Park, Red Mountain Park and Ruffner Mountain Nature Center and to support the vision of Birmingham as a national leader in green space.

Yeah, that last sentence is a little wordy, but announcements like this means its moving forward.
