Whitey Lee Park is approximately 20 acres in size. The facility provides a variety of outdoor activities such as fishing, picnic pavilion, walking trail and Community House. The park was donated to the City by Vanity Fair Foundation. The park was created under the direction of M. O. “Whitey” Lee who was a resident of Monroeville, a trustee for the Foundation and Chairman of VF Corporation until his death on March 5, 1962.
The lake is stocked with catfish and bream. Fishing is permitted for people under the age of 15 and over 60.
Feeding the ducks at the lake is a favorite past time for many senior citizens.
