Limestone Park

“Limestone Park is a site on the Appalachian-Highlands Birding Trail and recognized as a Central Alabama Birding Hot Spot. The park is abundant with rare plant life, aquatic & land animals, breeding & nesting area for 100’s of bird species. Including a nearby Egret & Blue Heron Rookery.” Quotes from the Friends of Limestone Park Facebook Page. 

Limestone Park is off of Hwy 31 South.

Limestone park is a great place to go for a walk. This is a preserve and should be treated as such. My husband and I stumbled across LSP when we were out looking for new places to hike. We moved in Alabaster in 2015. This is not really a hike, but rather a great place to get out and walk. It’s a great place to take pictures of birds, plants, and other animals. There is a small boardwalk, but it does not extend into the swamp. I know a lot of classes come out to LSP for its ecosystem. LSP officially has a sign and I really think it is really helping it to come together. LSP is one of the first places I wanted to start volunteering at. I haven’t did much or really any volunteering just yet. I will leave you with this, get out and explore your area and backyards, you may find something extraordinary.

If you are a bird lover/photographer I highly recommend you stop on your way through Alabama. These photos are a mix between Spring, Summer, and Fall.

  1. This looks awesome! Where in Alabama? I’m guessing near Alabaster, but would love a link or map to find it! Are dogs allowed on the paths? I love pretending I’m a photographer, lol, so excited to check this place out!

    • Thanks Rebekah! I will add some directions and try to add a screen shot in there of the map. I am sure you can bring your dogs, but I would advise to keep them on leash because of the birds and you wouldn’t want them to accidentally go in the swamp. Normal rules for most places you hike or parks, dogs must be on a leash. It is located in Alabaster, close to Calera as well.
