If you’re a fan of going fast and getting filthy, Tuscaloosa Mud Park has a lot on offer.

The new facility, located near Hillcrest High School 8132 Old Marion Road in Tuscaloosa, offers 10 mud-filled tracks for ATVs and other off-road vehicles. It costs $5 to get into the park and $10 to register a vehicle, but children younger than 10 can get in free.

For the even more adventurous, the park hosts racing events; the next major event is happening July 29.

For those who don’t own any off-road vehicles, there’s a water pit and a slip-and-slide so visitors can keep cool.

“This is something for people to do that’s not far away, everywhere else is far away,” said Tuscaloosa Mud Park’s property manager, who asked not to be named. “It’s laid back, if you don’t have a ride you can slip n’ slide, bring tents, coolers, have a cookout and grill out.”
