Just minutes from downtown and Redstone Arsenal this land has been farmed for well over a century. The 850 acres of forests, fields, springs, and ponds are revered as a place where a family made their home. From a blacksmith’s forge to rows of peach trees, this land has been cherished. Children have wandered in the woods, fished in the ponds, and have delighted in the splendor of the setting. Around this land grew a progressive city, marked by the spirit and innovation that carried man into space. As innovation remade this city, so too it allowed this land to yield a livelihood for its people.
Today, this land is being cultivated yet again. Nearly two-thirds will remain as protected parkland. That represents 540 acres of trails, woods, lakes, and open spaces that will transform this place an enduring playground for the families of a growing region.
