Firms in Airbus project form non-profit to revitalize Mobile’s Doyle Park

 MOBILE, Alabama — Several firms involved in the Airbus construction project at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley, the Mobile Airport Authority, and several community residents are spearheading an effort to rejuvenate a downtrodden, 24-acre city park in an economically disadvantaged neighborhood adjacent to the industrial complex.

Doyle Park, located at 1728 Rosedale Road, was originally part of the Brookley Air Force Base, where 17,000 people were employed before the base closed in 1969.

A non-profit organization called the Friends of Doyle Park has been formed to carry out the campaign, which calls for adding athletic fields, a playground, a walking trail, a splash park, event pavilions, and other amenities. In keeping with Doyle Park’s history as a prime location for viewing activity at Mobile Downtown Airport, the project aims to add observation terraces so families can watch flights by Airbus passenger jets assembled at the company’s Mobile Aeroplex Assembly Line.
