Perry County’s recreational park on the Cahaba River had been closed to the public since the 1970s. The park was reopened in 2002 through the efforts of local community leaders and politicians. Cedar was milled from nearby property to provide a decking. Aluminum sheathing on the underside of the pavilion provides a large reflective surface in an area that is otherwise dim beneath the tree canopy. Damaged by a falling tree during Hurricane Ivan, the pavilion was re-built in 2006.
