Gardendale Parks and Recreation Department
In August of 1994, under then Mayor G. William Noble, a beautification division was created within the department with a strong emphasis in beautifying the two major roadways within the city limits of Gardendale, Decatur Highway and Fieldstown Road. Former Mayor Kenny Clemons continued this emphasis.
In 2007, the City of Gardendale purchased the old Oakwood Cemetery office building and converted it into the Parks and Recreation Offices. This building also houses the Gardendale Tennis Association office.
