The Natural Bridge Park is a park in Winston County, Alabama. It features the natural bridge of Alabama, a rock formation that measures 60 feet in height and 148 feet in length. It is composed primarily of iron ore and sandstone and is the longest of its sort located east of the Rocky Mountains.

According to experts, the natural bridge in the Natural Bridge Park is about 200 million years old. It was formed by water eroding the weaker sandstone from the stronger, thus creating a formation. The site is believed to have been used by Native Americans for shelter and tribes like the Creek Indians lived in the area. An Indian stone head stands as proof, although, no one knows how it got there.

The Natural Bridge Park was established in 1954. It continues to be open to the public today.
