Parks have long been recognized as a primary contributor to the quality of life in a community. From tiny pocket parks that offer respite in the bustle of an urban setting to large, multifunctional sports and entertainment complexes.
The city of Albertville has long been united by a common goal to create a world-class park and this ambitious vision is about to be realized. Slated to open in August in Albertville is Sand Mountain Park & Amphitheater – a sports, leisure, wellness and performing venue. Designed by Montgomery-based Chambless King Architects, the project has been envisioned by the community for over 20 years.
“Since 2017, our design team and the city of Albertville have been striving to understand how the design of Sand Mountain Park and Amphitheater should reflect this special place and its special people in an extraordinary 135-acre park,” says John Chambless.
