A PARK FOR YELLOWLEAF (Jan 2012)
The effort kicked off in January 2012 to evalu-ate the feasibility of the project. In February, homeowners were surveyed for their thoughts, ideas and concerns about a potential park.
After two months of work to assess the 14 acres on Sweet Gum Drive and what it would take to develop a park, a presentation* was made to the HOA Board of Directors and interested attendees on March 6th.
The green light was given - so now we are at the very beginning of a 5 year effort to bring the vision to reality.
What Will Be Needed?
Hard work ... lot of volunteers ... lots and lots of money ...
Good organization ... great leadership ... and time ...
WE CAN DO THIS!
* Presentation contains 25 slides and will take a few seconds to open.
DOGWOOD CREEK PARK
The park is no longer actively managed, due to a lack of volunteers. Users assume their own risk when entering the park.
Dogwood Creek Park was created in 2012 with much "blood, sweat and tears", a few dedicated volunteers and a lot of fundraising. It is a lovely example of the natural Alabama landscape, full of trees, flora and fauna. Efforts ended after several years of development.
We have left some of the announcements on this page as a bit of history for those who are interested. If it kindles a volunteer effort at some time in the future, that would be welcomed.
Pictures taken in February 2012. Wow - we've made a lot of progress in a short time!
