Dubbed one of the most unique parks and nature preserves in the south, Orr Park, bordering the picturesque Shoal Creek, is Montevallo’s crowning jewel. This forty-acre park features traditional amenities such as athletic fields, playgrounds, a walking trail, picnic tables, pavilions, a gazebo and restroom facilities but the magical cedar tree carvings throughout Tinglewood remain our greatest local attraction. Pedestrians and cyclists traveling throughout the park are as likely to amble by gnomes, a dragon or a fish eating a snake as they are to pass by a local family walking their dog. Tinglewood is solely credited to Mr. Tim Tingle, a coal miner by trade, who took it upon himself to transform storm-damaged cedar trees into glorious works of art in the early 1990’s. He continues to bless the city with his talents up to today for residents and visitors to enjoy.
