Daikin Amphitheater at Founder's ParkHome | Photos | Events |
The Daikin Amphitheater is located in front of Old State Bank in Historic Downtown Decatur.
905 Canal St NE
Decatur, AL 35601
Fronting the historic building is a 2-acre park known as Founder's Park which was created in the 1900's to help preserve the frontal view of this landmark structure, provide green space for the adjacent historic downtown and historic residential neighborhoods, serve as a link from the downtown to the riverfront, create an area for special events and heritage/cultural tourism development and define a major entry into Decatur's historic districts.
In 2012, Daikin America provided a $100,000 donation to the City of Decatur for the construction of this amphitheater. A matching grant of $50,000 from the Land and Water Conservation Fund through ADECA was also presented. Other partners who made the project possible were:
Rotary Club of Decatur
Rotary District Foundation
Decatur Downtown Redevelopment Authority
Alabama Tourism Department
Decatur Parks and Recreation Department
Fite Building Company
Decatur Beautification Committee
Godwin, Barnett & Woods
City of Decatur
The amphitheater stage, designed by Sam Barnett of GBW Architects, complements the architecture of the Old State Bank and is linked aesthetically to other parks developed in the city.
