Millennium Park is located in the Civic Center Complex adjacent to the Gardendale Historical Society museum. It was dedicated in November of 2001. Two distinctive features in the park are the clock tower and the ornate fountain.
Following opening ceremonies of the Magnolia Festival on April 17, 2010 officials unveiled a large metal plaque near Millennium Park that highlights significant moments in Gardendale’s history.
Gardendale received the plaque from participating in the statewide Year of Alabama Small Towns and Downtowns, which is sponsored by the office of the governor, Alabama League of Municipalities, Alabama State Chambers of Commerce and the Alabama Tourism Department. The Alabama Tourism Department paid for the Gardendale plaque, as well as others around the state.
