In an effort to help our community and park guests stay healthy, Cheaha playgrounds, museums, Bunker Tower, Cheaha Lake and beach will not be open to the public. We will re-evaluate around May 1st. With such a dynamic situation, this could change so keep checking back.
We are continuing to monitor statements/recommendations from government organizations including the Alabama Department of Public Health regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) closely and will open these treasured spaces once we feel it is appropriate to do so. We apologize for the inconvenience but the health of our guests, staff, and community are our top priority.
Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, officials from the Alabama State Parks division announced the cancellation of all public programs in state parks through May 1, 2020. As the coronavirus continues to spread, we want to assure our visitors that their health and safety is a primary concern. We are taking extra precaution by canceling group activities and encouraging social distancing in an effort to minimize the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19, while still allowing visitors access to the recreation and beautiful outdoor places that can help their physical and mental health. During this time of social distancing, our goal at Alabama State Parks is to continue providing you and your families with fun, educational, and inspiring programs: online. We may not be able to gather together in groups, but we will be using technology to bring the fun to you and present creative things you can do outdoors! Please visit our Cheaha State Park-Alabama Facebook page for videos about the park, nature programs, and nature crafting. Please stay connected with Alabama State Parks through our social media pages and websites. Contact our Park Naturalist, Mandy Pearson at Mandy.Pearson@dcnr.alabama.gov for more information.
