Oak Mountain State Park is Alabama’s largest state park at 9,940 acres.The park makes up the northeast quadrant of the city of Pelham and is 18 miles south of Birmingham, the state’s largest city. Oak Mountain was created when the State Land Act of 1927 granted the park the 940 acres between Double Oak Mountain and Little Oak Ridge. From 1934 to 1941, the park saw improvements made by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and the Works Progress Administration. Remnants of the CCC era—foundations, bridges and other infrastructure, can be seen throughout the park. In 1943, the National Park Service (NPS) deeded the state park approximately 8,000 acres of surrounding land that the NPS had acquired in the 1930s. (Wikipedia)
