George Dailey Park, located in front of Montevallo Middle School, embodies a rich heritage in Montevallo. George Dailey was the first African-American city council member in Montevallo and is credited with beginning the movement that the city council be elected by districts. Montevallo Middle School was formerly Prentice High School, Montevallo’s first and only African-American High School from 1950-1970. George Dailey was the last principal of this school. Approximately an acre in size, Dailey Park provides a unique respite and recreation area for children and adults alike. The park features a pavilion, picnic table, playground equipment and benches, perfect for family celebrations or a daily stroll.
