The Miracle League removes the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the baseball field and lets them experience the joy of Americaโ€™s favorite pastime โ€“ every player hits, every player gets on base, every player scores and every player wins! Since the main barriers for these players arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional leagues, all Miracle League of Vestavia Hills, AL teams play and practice on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries. The all-new Miracle League Field in Vestavia Hills is located at Wald Park on Highway 31 South.

The VHAC - Vestavia Hills Aquatics Complex is open and the weather is great.๏ฟผ๏ฟผ
Ribbon Cutting at Cahaba Heights Park! What a perfect night to celebrate! Thank you to all who attended and especially the "Founding Families", the Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce and the City of Vestavia Hills for your continued support! Now..... Let's "Play Ball"!
Thank you so much for your work on the old AVCC property. Itโ€™s so nice to have the parking area and gravel extension to the path. I also really appreciate limiting cars to just the parking area and keeping them off the course. Itโ€™s been so much better in the neighborhood since these changes were made. Thank you!
When will the splash pad close?
New Community Space Plans revealed this week at a work session.
It was another wonderful day yesterday at the SHAC Splash Pad. Thanks to the City of Vestavia for such an amazing community amenity.
Are there any toddler swim lesson opportunities in Vestavia?
May I ask where we stand on gym renovation on 31? West has a event this week and will not allow my 4th/5th grade girls to practice. No where to go for a reasonable time. Thank you!
Mary Oakley loves the new splash pad and climbing tree! Thank you to the city of Vestavia Hills for such an amazing amenity.
Are tennis lessons for adults offered at Wald Park?
