Bluff Park is a community located in Hoover atop Shades Mountain.
The annual Bluff Park Art Show started in 1963.
Bluff Park was originally developed as a summer vacation site and mountain resort. Gardner Hale bought the mountain property in the 1860's and named it Hale Springs. One of the first recorded uses of the name "Bluff Park" was for the Bluff Park Hotel, built in 1907.
