Townhouse Park

Townhouse Park is a small, landscaped open space created by UAB on the site of the former Town House apartment building which it acquired and demolished in 2019.

The park, on the corner of University Boulevard and 20th Street South adjoining UAB Parking Lot 30, is furnished with benches and tables.

In December 2020 a new art installation was added to the park. It consists of three laser-cut stainless steel towers with programmed LED lighting. Each tower features art patterns conceptualized by local artist Deedee Morrison and was inspired by sketches and notes from former UAB faculty, staff and students found in the UAB Archives. The light towers have sequenced, program lighting that changes every few minutes.
