Nick Saban is the hardest working man in college football but recently Saban made time to sit down with his wife Terry and Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox and discuss the plans for the new Saban Center. The Saban Center aimed at uniting the Children's Hands On Museum, the Tuscaloosa Public Library and the Tuscaloosa Children's Theatre.

The Saban Center will be the new occupant of the Tuscaloosa News building and will serve as a landmark location in the new River District Park. The park will serve as an outdoor extension of the Saban Center with a river-viewing area and connections to the Tuscaloosa Riverwalk.

The planning phase is underway for both the Saban Center and the River District Park, construction for the park is expected to be underway this spring and summer and construction on the building is expected to get underway in the winter of 2023.

The center will feature a black-box theatre and will bring STEM programs to serve the Saban Center. The stated goal of the center is to bring these STEM programs together with the theater in addition to literature, outdoor recreation and interactive learning for children and families of the Tuscaloosa area.
