*** ALL PARK VISITORS PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT PARK MESSAGE REGARDING CLOSURE OF PARK ROAD 2*******

Beginning Monday April 18th 2016 at 6am, a portion of State Park Road 2 that run roughly 1.5 miles through Gulf State Park will be converted to a vehicle free path for pedestrians, cyclists and the future park tram.   State Park Road 2 will now only be accessible for Park Cabin and Golf Course guests.  

Campground guest arriving from Highway 59 will now need to take 135 to Beach Boulevard and then take Park Road 2 back into the campground. 

Vehicle free trails in this portion of the park will enrich the visitor experience, create multiple loops, increase access for visitors with differing abilities and will improve the health of the park’s central wetlands and animal habitat.  A new and safe trail from the campground to the middle beach dune crossing will also be added.

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:

It's a great day at Gulf State Park! We are searching for a group of 10-20 people to help paint one of our staff houses. All of the materials for the project will be provided. We will work for about 4 hours and will finish around lunch time. If you have a group that is interested, please email Lydia Mclain at lydia.mclain@dcnr.alabama.gov .
