Snow Hinton Park
Updated Oct 20 2020
Project status: after completion of the master plan and inventory of infrastructure, work is paused
Development of a master plan to envision the future of Snow Hinton Park is underway. The master plan process will determine how the park is being used, what opportunities are available within the space, and what improvements residents would most like to see at the park. This finished plan will guide decisions about future updates made to the park. In addition, an inventory and condition assessment is being made of the surrounding roads, pedestrian amenities, traffic, lighting, and water and sewer systems. This will provide an understanding of the public infrastructure that is available in and around the park, as well as the flow of traffic in the area.
Purchased by the city in 1975, Snow Hinton Park is Tuscaloosa’s most visible park. The 40-acre green space is located along U.S. Highway 82 (McFarland Boulevard) a short distance north of Interstate 20/59 in an area surrounded by commercial and residential development. Thousands of people drive by each day. Featuring a walking track, pavilions, large climbing net and slide, public art display, and large open green fields, the park is a popular destination for residents.
