River District Park

Updated Nov 03 2020

Summary

This new park will be constructed next to the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater along the bank of the Black Warrior River. The destination will serve as a gateway to Western Tuscaloosa and will anchor the northwest corner of Greensboro Avenue and Jack Warner Parkway. In addition, it will provide green space, river-viewing areas, and plaza space. 


The park will offer the opportunity for coordinated community events and programming that tie outdoor recreation to the interactive STEAM programming happening inside the Saban Center across the road. A master plan for the site will be completed to determine the best layout and features to include in the park. Then, the park will be designed based on the master plan and construction will follow.

Goals and Impact
  • Create a family-friendly, scenic gateway to Western Tuscaloosa to improve connectivity between areas of the city

  • Link Saban Center programs with outdoor recreation to enrich the experience of visitors

  • Enhance the existing Riverwalk on the south bank of the Black Warrior River with a new destination point and riverfront access
