Bayfront Park Map View

You can see from the map above that Bayfront adjoins the beautiful Village Point Park Preserve which offers acres of protected forest, wetlands, and walking trails.  The two parks are connected by a recently re-constructed boardwalk.

Bayfront Pavilion

Bayfront Pavilion

A unique aspect that you don’t usually find at a park is the 7,000 square foot pavilion that is available to rent.  The Bayfront Pavilion offers 2 large rooms, a kitchen, and a large deck.  This would be a perfect location for a wedding, family reunion, or holiday party.  The pavilion can accommodate crowds from 20 to 299 guests.

Here’s an example of a wedding that took place at the pavilion.

Nature at Bayfront

Bayfront Pier

The pier is perfect for taking in the great views of Mobile Bay or the beautiful sunsets.  It’s located close to the parking lot and the pavilion.

Bayfront Pier and Sunset

This pier is actually on the beach of the Village Point Park Preserve which is connected to Bayfront from the boardwalk.  As you can see, there is a wide beach to just sit, relax, and enjoy the view.

Bayfront Gazebo

Along with many benches along the shoreline, you can rest and get out of the sun at this open gazebo that overlooks the bay.

Bayfront Boardwalk

Bayfront Boardwalk

Be one with nature while you stroll down the long boardwalk connecting both parks.  This is a protected area so there is a good chance of spotting some of the wildlife that’s indigenous to lower Alabama.  When my fiance and I took these pics we saw a large alligator as well as a baby one.

Bayfront - Ducks in a Tree

Yes, that’s a picture of 5 ducks in a tree.  Obviously they are smart ducks, knowing what is lying beneath them!

Bayfront Park is a little off the beaten path but it’s close by.  I think that many locals even forget that it’s there.  Do yourself a favor and visit this great staple of Daphne.  You’ll be glad you did.
