Progress 2012: Fultondale's Black Creek Park gets spruced up


Workers have added two fenced-in areas for dogs in the city’s “bark park” and have added picnic tables and grills. 

Loden said crews have also cleaned up along the creek. He said he often sees daycare classes at the Children’s Park, with teachers and children playing in the creek. 

“This is not just for youth. We want adults to come and have fun,” Loden said.

Besides the parks, other organizations contribute greatly to quality of life in Fultondale. 

The Fultondale Senior Center serves numerous people every day, including meals, games, speakers, trips and other activities. The center is a big part of dozens of seniors’ daily lives. 

Another group making a big impact in the city is the Fultondale Arts Council, headed up by Kara Kennedy. 

The council recently hosted its second annual arts festival, which drew a large crowd. 

Upcoming events for the council is Art After Dark at Iberia Bank on Tuesday and a Barking at the Moon Festival at the Children’s Park in October.
