A fantastic day spent in Tinglewood-Orr Park with the mystical, whimsical creatures created by wood carver Tim Tingle. Also stopped by the Blue Phrog Gallery; they carry artwork created by Mr. Tingle.

Wizard Tree.

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.

Tinglewood/Orr park

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.
