There's an adventure waiting for you and your family, just on the outskirts of Dothan, at Landmark Park. A 135-acre park built to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of southeast Alabama's Wiregrass Region. Landmark Park is more than just a place to look. It is a place to participate and experience.
Experience history on an 1890's living history farm, complete with an old farmhouse, smokehouse, cane mill, syrup shed, and sheep, mules, cows, chickens, goats and pigs. Drift back in time in a Victorian gazebo, a one-room schoolhouse, a drugstore and soda fountain, a country store or a turn-of-the-century church.
Experience nature with a walk through the woods on an elevated boardwalk, stroll nature trails, visit our interpretive center and planetarium, see wildlife exhibits and have a picnic in our picnic area.
Experience the excitement of annual special events like folklife festivals, antique car shows, traveling exhibits, concerts and workshops.
Experience the heritage of the Wiregrass Region and experience an adventure!

Landmark Park is now one of 2,000 museums and parks across North America to offer free admission to active military personnel and their families this summer in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense. Organizations participating in the Blue Star Museums network will offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel, including National Guard and Reserve, and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2014. “We are proud to participate in this program, especially since Fort Rucker is so close and we have so many family-oriented activities planned this summer” stated William Holman, Executive Director of Landmark Park. “It is a great way to say thanks to the men and women who serve our country.” The free admission program is available to active military who present a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card. Free gate admission to the park will be granted to the military ID holder and up to five family members during the stated time period.

“Special thanks are due locally to the Army Aviation Federal Credit Union for serving as our corporate partner in this program” stated Holman. “Their financial support will help underwrite the cost to the park of offering this program.”
