In November of 2013, Ms. Elizabeth "Betty" Mahler donated her family's 167-acre estate with an Antebellum style home to the City of Montevallo to be developed into Shoal Creek Park. Once part of a larger 800-acre farm owned by the Perry Family, this property is now cherished as a public historic and recreation site.
Shoal Creek runs through the park, providing numerous scenic vistas and areas for enjoying the shoals. A dedicated group of volunteers have developed miles of hiking and biking trails with plans for further development. The park features walking trails, a pavilion modeled after an old barn that once stood on the property, restroom facilities, and a 50-vehicle parking lot for public use.

A city-formed advisory committee, the Shoal Creek Park Foundation, is working to define the scope and vision of the park as well as secure funding for park development. If you're interested in volunteering or donating, call City Hall at 205-665-2555.
The City of Montevallo would like to thank all of those who have given their time, money, and efforts to make this park a highlight of our community.
Reservations for the park or pavilion are made on a first-come, first-served, basis. Follow this link to complete a park reservation request: Park Reservation Rental Request Form. Once your request is received you will receive an email (during regular business hours) from City Hall with further instructions.
