A new and improved Harmon Park is open in Tuscaloosa – after being destroyed in the April 2011 tornado.

“Harmon Field and Rosedale Park are a gateway to our city and the eastern terminus of the City Walk, which simulates the path of the tornado,” said Becky Booker, public relations and marketing manager for the Tuscaloosa County Park & Recreation Authority. “The centerpiece of this playground is a custom 21-inch tall, hand-sculpted, hand-painted treehouse, the tallest piece ever designed by the manufacturer and possibly the tallest in the southeast.”
