City Walk BHAM is made possible by a significant investment from the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT). The investment allowed for a space featuring amenities for the community to be made, however, City Walk must be operated in a fashion that will allow it to be sustainable financially. Revenues from programming, special events, and other activities generate fees that will help offset a portion of the operating expenses to keep City Walk BHAM safe, secure, maintained, and remain an asset for the greater Birmingham community for many years to come.
