Cofrin Nature Park
**Cofrin Nature Park Playground is getting more shade! The new shade sails will be larger than the old shade sails and will provide additional coverage from the sun. The entire play area will be closed during construction but the park itself will remain open. Construction begins today, October 16 and is estimated to be completed by October 27th.**
The playground equipment features great climbing areas and monkey bars. Cofrin Nature Park features a half-mile long hiking trail. Once a horse farm, much of this park is returning to forest through natural succession. Large hardwood trees are found in the forest along picturesque Beville Heights Creek, and seepage wetlands on the slopes above the creek support lush growths of ferns and wildflowers.
