Union Park in Fort Payne














For some of you who perhaps haven't been through Fort Payne in a while, you might be interested to hear of the renovations of Union Park downtown. I believe that much of the improvements have been spearheaded by the Alabama band. There are new sidewalks, landscaping, picnic tables, a nice pavilion, new playground equipment, and a beautiful fountain. There is also a "memorial" for a lack of better terms to honor the Alabama boys. The statues are interesting....some are rather lifelike and others not-so-lifelike. The statue of Randy Owen, although my favorite member of the band, looks more like Mr. Miagi from Karate Kid the movie than of the legendary country music artist.

you are right Randy does look lie he just walked out of the Karate Kid. I thought the first guy was an Indian man... If it is suppose to be Jeff Cook they need to add several hundred lbs... but hey if it was my statue it would look like Hedi Klumm..shay
