Parks and Recreation
Under the guidance of Parks and Recreation Superintendent Dale Hyche, our team is committed to creating attractive, well-maintained public facilities that all the citizens of Gardendale can enjoy. The city's parks are strategically placed throughout the area, mostly within easy walking distance of residential areas. In Bill Noble Park, locals can find nine baseball fields, one football field, eight tennis courts, eleven Pickleball courts, and a playground. At Luman Harris Park, just off Pineywood Road, there’s Gardendale’s Miracle League park, complete with a playground that’s perfect for family weekends. The Mini Park at Keith Circle boasts a playground and basketball court situated in a tranquil, shady area.
The Soccer Complex off Fieldstown Road has two regulation soccer fields, a flag football field, and a walking track, and Celebration Park - originally opened in May 2007 - contains a Splash Pad that to date is still one of the most visited attractions. None of these spaces would be here without the support of hundreds of generous volunteers associated with these parks and associations. Moreover, the department engages in ongoing beautification and landscaping activities across the city. To date, it has planted over 2,500 crape myrtles, as well as several other varieties of trees and shrubs. Gardendale has also received national recognition as a participant in the 'America in Bloom' program. We cordially invite you to visit all of our parks and catch a glimpse of all they have to offer. We also welcome your suggestions on bettering our parks, as well as our department, so that we can provide the best service and amenities for our citizens.
