Press Release

Three Years After Fire, Monte Sano Gets New Office/Store

February 13, 2013

The Monte Sano State Park store is currently undergoing renovations to accommodate its expanded role as the park’s main office and store. The original park office was destroyed by fire in 2010. Since then the store has served as both administrative offices and store. When renovations are complete in May 2013, the combined facility will offer handicap accessible restrooms and sell refreshments, limited groceries and souvenirs.

A temporary park office located across the street from the current store is available for visitors to check in for lodging and day use activities. Restrooms are available at the temporary office. 
 
Monte Sano, Spanish for “Mountain of Health”, rises more than 1,600 feet above sea level in Huntsville, Ala. The mountain has attracted visitors since the mid-1820s. Today Monte Sano State Park offers an escape from the hustle of city life via hiking trails, various camping options, and other outdoor activities. For more information about the park, visit www.alapark.com/MonteSano/.
