The Bluff Park neighborhood resides atop Shades Mountain in Hoover, AL. It overlooks Oxmoor Valley now home to the Ross Bridge community and Resort. Bluff Park was once a resort town itself. In the 1890's some of the wealthier Steel Barons that relocated to Birmingham decided to make this slice of heaven atop Shades Mountain their personal retreat. They would build "summer homes" in this fresh air community. Bluff Park is known for its cool spring water and densely wooded home sites which would make it the perfect Summer getaway in the 19th century. Nowadays Bluff Park is known for its large home sites, quaint older quality built homes, and an award winning elementary schools. Recently the City of Hoover has revamped this community installing more sidewalks along the main roadway know as Park avenue. Families can enjoy such activities as going to the Bluff Park community center to swim, taking strolls along Park Avenue, taking in the talented artists at the art show, eating a great "meat and 3" at the Bluff Park Diner, or having an amazing hamburger while enjoying an equally amazing view at Tip Top Grill. In some ways Bluff Park still makes a great "Getaway."
