Kenning eyed for baseball, dog park

Birmingham’s Kenning, one of the cities busier parks, may bet baseball and dogs.


The Parks & Recreation Board approved a resolution Tuesday urging the City Commission to adopt a master plan for Kenning Park at Lincoln Road and Eton. Part of the resolution also endorses a concept plan brought forward by the Birmingham Little League and Brother Rice High School to reconfigure the four baseball fields at Kenning and add new amenities to the park.
