Visitor Tips and News About Tinglewood Trail - Orr Park
This is a beautiful park. Lots of shade. Bring a picnic. The carvings are an added bonus. Not just creepy trolls, but lots of animals, too.[Tansy Ridings, 07/22/2012]
There are a lot of faces carved into the trees. Some of them you have to look for.[Richard Zimmerman, 07/29/2011]
We live in Montevallo, so we frequent this park. We were fortunate enough to have a guided tour with Tim Tingle, the artist behind the carvings, in November, 2010. The park is beautiful and the carvings are quite fun to discover. There is a nice walking trail, and in the summer you can bring your swim suit and take a dip in the creek. There are also bathroom facilities by the playground and covered picnic tables.[Mandy, 07/29/2011]
Tim Tingle carved faces and animals on trees around the park. Some are creepy and some are cute. It is well worth seeing. A lot of work went into the carvings.[Lynn Zimmerman, 12/30/2010]
Tingle started carving on old cedar trees killed in a 1993 storm. There are over 30 faces sculpted onto trunks around the park.
