The Friends of Red Mountain Park is a group of volunteers who are united in thinking that Red Mountain Park will be a win-win situation for all of us in Birmingham. Our mission is to promote, enhance, and enjoy Red Mountain Park. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that serves as a bridge between the community and t
he park Commission and staff. Throughout the planning process we have striven to bring all interested voices to the table and give everyone a way to participate in this great project.
We count among our numbers state legislators and soccer moms, business executives and frisbee golfers, conservationists and weekend warriors, residents from both nearby neighborhoods and extended suburbs. We have over 3,000 members on our email list and have led more than 3,500 people through the park on introductory hikes.
Our activities include speaking to groups, building and maintaining trails, leading guided hikes, and hosting events at the park and around the community. From time to time we put on fundraising events events to fund our trail projects, increase local awareness of Red Mountain Park, and attract volunteers. As the park continues to develop, the profile and membership of our organization will develop as well.
