City Park

Historic Site or District
John Dersham, DeKalb Tourism

Located in downtown Fort Payne on the corner of Gault Avenue and 5th Street across from the Dekalb Theater, City Park is the oldest park in Fort Payne and is home to the newly inaugurated statues honoring the country music supergroup Alabama who call Fort Payne their home.

It features 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.

During Boom Days, festival goers can hear different musicians entertaining the crowds from the Gazebo and during December the park lights up for the annual Christmas in the Park celebration.
