SPECIAL EVENT: "A WALK IN THE PARK" OPEN HOUSE--Invitation to the Public to Learn More about Planned Projects and Share Feedback on Sunday, September 9, 1:30-3:30, Museum Grounds
The public is invited to join the Birmingham Museum Board for this special opportunity to learn more about the planned landscape projects for the museum's four acres of parkland.
The 2018 Master Landscape Plan details the unique historic and natural features of the site and its wide diversity of ecosystems, divided into four distinct landscape zones. A station will be set up at each zone to highlight its special characteristics, preservation needs, and conceptual plans for enhanced public access and experience. Museum Board members are eager to share ideas with the public about the site and get feedback on planned projects.
Historic landscape architect Brian Devlin of Nagy Devlin Land Designs will be on hand to talk with visitors about the special qualities of our landscape and how the Master Landscape plan seeks to address the need to protect the landscape while making it more publicly accessible through low impact pathways, enhanced views and seating, appropriate historic plantings, and in particular, the preservation and interpretation of the unique spring-fed swimming pool built by the Allens and used by their son Jim as physical therapy for his polio.
