Hoover's Quality of Life: Adding more green space has been a major project for the City of Hoover during the past eight years, which is reflected in Veteran's Park, Moss Rock Preserve, and several other projects. The city of Hoover recently donated 99 acres to Moss Rock Preserve. More parks are being added and we recently built Loch Haven Dog Park, which has become very popular with our residents. Also, the establishment of the Senior Center gives the senior citizens of Hoover opportunity to have a place where they can come and enjoy one another. All of these projects add so much value to the quality of life in Hoover.
Mayor Ivey on future plans: We plan to add a new sports complex. Parks and recreation are very important to Hoover and its residents, and we have many young people that want to participate. We aim to continue to make Hoover the place where people want to raise their family.
