Vestavia Parks and Recreation

Where dreams come true


The Vestavia Hills Parks & Recreation Foundation partners with organizations such as the Vestavia Hills Parks and Recreation Board, the City of Vestavia Hills, and the Citizens of Vestavia Hills with the goal of providing our community with great parks and recreation areas.

Mission Statement: Vestavia Hills Parks and Recreation Foundation:

“The mission of the Foundation is to strengthen our local community through investments in parks and recreational activities for people of all ages. We are committed to investing time and resources into community parks, green spaces and the environment as well as programs to promote a healthy, thriving community, supporting mind, body and spirit.”

With approximately 5,000 youth participating in Vestavia Hills Parks and Recreation Department programs, there is a definite need for facilities of which we can be proud. To that end, our Mayor, the City Council, and the Parks and Recreation Board have committed to expanding and improving our facilities in community-changing ways. The Vestavia Hills Parks and Recreation Foundation looks forward to assisting in this endeavor.
