                  The Cahaba River Park is a joint venture between the Alabama Forever Wild Land Trust and Shelby County with the County taking the lead on development of outdoor amenities at the park. This scenic park is located at the confluence of the Cahaba River and Shades Creek with 1,838 acres including a combined 1,339 acres in the developed North Sector (1,212 acres Forever Wild Property and 127 acres Shelby County Property) on River Road (County Road 251) off County Road 13 west of Helena. The undeveloped South Sector (311 acres Forever Wild Property and 188 acres Shelby County Property) is located at the end of County Road 251 off County Road 10 west of Montevallo.

                  County Road 251 does not cross the Cahaba River, and there is no motorized vehicle access between the two sectors. There are several river miles of canoeing to be enjoyed or a great place to enjoy swimming or fishing when the water levels safely permit. The park operates from sunrise to sunset.
