Throughout the year, Alabama’s 22 state parks will host a variety of hikes, nature walks and programs, dining and camping specials and various other events highlighting 75 years of service to the people of Alabama.
Parks 75th Anniversary
We are happy to say that we are implementing much needed repairs at many of our parks with the funds the legislature restored to our 2014 budget. While these restored funds are not sufficient to address all of the renovation and maintenance needs we presently have, it’s a good start. With this positive start, we hope to address many of the remaining projects through continued funding in the 2015 budget year.
