Overlook Park Under Reconstruction in Montgomery, AL
The City of Montgomery has closed Overlook Park for reconstruction as part of the Maxwell Boulevard Neighborhood Plan redevelopment. Several improvements are slated for the park, following the recommendations from a Dover-Kohl charrette held in March of this year. These include the parking lot being removed in favor of on-street parking allowing green space to be expanded, adding a staircase down to the downtown farm, and adding a new roof to the existing pavilion. The park overlooks the Alabama River and Downtown Montgomery.
The revamped park will serve as the keystone for the planned redevelopment of the properties along Maxwell Boulevard. Earlier this year, the City released a Request for Development Proposals for the City-owned properties. The sale of these properties will help pay for the improvements to Overlook Park.
