The Fort is a fun, safe place where kids can use their imaginations and play for hours on end. Planning for the project was facilitated by a City program, “Together Let’s Build the Fort”. Constructed on City property located behind City Hall on Ember Lane and completed in 2002, this wonderful facility became a reality thanks to the involvement, dedication and volunteer labor of the Spanish Fort community and the generous funding from many contributors, both private and corporate.
Amenities at The Fort include:
• Expanded playground facility with separate section for children under 5-years
• Picnic tables
• Covered pavilion – may be reserved for private parties
• Restroom facilities
• Ample parking adjacent to the park
