Recently, The Tribune set out to explore all the many beautiful parks within Cullman County. We’ll visit one each week.

CULLMAN, Ala. – Lions Club Park, located in southeast Cullman at 1315 Seventh St., is perhaps the greatest picnic spot of Cullman’s neighborhood parks. Formerly known as East Side Park, this 4.5-acre park has an updated playground, ball field and plenty of picnic tables for a family outing.

The many picnic tables are scattered throughout the park and covered by plenty of shade trees. If you prefer basking in the sun, there is ample open space at Lions Club Park to do just that, and for all kinds of activities and games. The entire perimeter of the park is fenced in, providing safety from the neighborhood traffic. This makes the park an ideal playdate destination for those with young children.

Looking for the old school swing sets? This park’s got ‘em. There are numerous swings, including safety swings for the wee little ones.  Between the two large swing sets are the colorful jungle gym and climbing equipment. There are three slides connected to the jungle gym and a set of monkey bars. The playground is not ideal for those with disabilities.

A full-size basketball court is connected to a large hard-covered surface that could be used for a game of four square or pickleball. The park has a very well maintained baseball field and is a perfect place for the neighborhood kids to have some fun after school. Lions Club Park is surrounded by residential neighborhoods, so please be respectful with the noise level.

Sidewalks are plentiful inside the park and make a nice loop around the property. Those wishing for a peaceful walk or jog would likely find the park to be an ideal choice. The park is also a safe and fun place to take your favorite pooch out for a stroll. With plenty of open space to run and lots of shade trees, Xena The Tribune Park Puppy gives it two paws up!

Lions Club Park is open during the daylight hours and does have bathrooms. The sidewalks provide wheelchair accessibility around the park but do not lead directly to the picnic tables or playground. Lions Club Park is beautifully maintained by Cullman Parks, Recreation & Sports Tourism.
