Standpipe Park

“The Standpipe” was Tallapoosa’s first water system from 1890.  The old pipe stands on Highway 78 near the rail road track. The .84 acre park is directly across from the Standpipe, and was vacant for many years. The property was purchased by our local historian in May 2015 for the purpose of beautifying the entrance into Tallapoosa from the east. 

A main attraction in the park is a huge Deodar cedar, native to the mountain forests of the Himalayas.  What started as an entrance to Tallapoosa gradually became an outside art park. This is a labor of love from the local art community. You will find folk art carvings, a Flintstone mobile made from part of an old magnolia tree, various art paintings on plywood used to boarder a section of the park and many metal art creations. Stop by and take a load off at the picnic area under the pavilion built by a local scout for his Eagle Scout project.
