Newly refurbished, City Park is the oldest park in Fort Payne. It is located in downtown on the corner of Gault Avenue and 5th Street across from the Dekalb Theater. City Park is home to the newly inaugurated statues honoring the country music supergroup Alabama who call Fort Payne their home.
It features newly installed swings, a beautiful gazebo, picnic shelter, picnic tables, restrooms, and majestic century old Ginko trees. Historic markers flank the outskirts of the park and provide insightful facts on Fort Payne’s past. City Park is the perfect setting for a picnic or a large family gathering.
During Boom Days you will hear different musicians entertaining the crowds from the Gazebo and during December the park lights up and is host to our annual Christmas in the Park celebration.
