The City of Gardendale’s William Noble Recreation Complex is getting a massive upgrade. The recreational center just off I-65 will become one of the nicest sports parks in the state, with the help of a cool $27M.
Recently announced, Gardendale’s William Noble Recreation Complex will receive a whopping $27M for a complete makeover. The original park was built in the 1960’s, and according to many, the upgrade is long overdue.
