Veterans Park is our newest and largest Hoover park. It features a professionally developed 5K cross-country course for walking and jogging and is host each year to the Great American Cross Country Race. The park also hosts annual events such as Hoover's own Pet-a-Palooza and Movies in the Park. A large, open, grassy area and a two-acre lake with pier accommodate large crowds on evenings and weekends. In 2007, the park was chosen as the location for Hoover's 40th birthday celebration.

The park is surrounded by a 5K cross country trail with a lake and pond, large playground, beach volleyball courts, and two pavilions available for rent to the public. For more information on rentals, call 205-444-7781.
