James D. Martin Wildlife Park

James D. Martin Wildlife Park

This beautiful bird sanctuary is part of The Alabama Birding Trail and is located off Hwy 411, behind the Gadsden Mall. Efforts to transform flood plains and other wildlife acreage into recreational space are much appreciated by hikers, bikers, and others who enjoy the outdoors. The park was opened on October 15, 1991, and dedicated to James D. Martin, a Commissioner of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Elevated board walks with scenic vantage points, paved walking/biking paths, and hiking trails through the woods are some of the amenities offered to visitors to the Park.
