History & Mission

The mission of the Park is to provide inclusive, safe and fun recreational opportunities for residents of Lillian, Alabama and the surrounding communities, with a goal of providing healthy lifestyle programs residents can enjoy all year long. 

The Park was created in 1997 when the Lillian Community Club donated 17 acres to establish a park where community youth could play ball.  Since that time, many Lillian residents and other community organizations have donated money, labor and equipment to construct the Park’s walking trail, ball fields, soccer field, gardens, playground, and other amenities.  It’s truly been a labor of love by the community.
