Situated between the popular destinations of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama, Gulf State Park is the keystone that connects the communities and is a vital partner for sustainable economic growth in the region. To become a beacon for sustainable tourism required the region to find ways to rally the community around this forward vision.
With more than 13,000 years of history, 6,150 acres, and nine different ecosystems, the beach is truly only the beginning.
With 6,150 acres and nine ecosystems to explore, Gulf State Park is an exceptional place. Such an ecologically unique place deserves an equally environmentally special building to greet visitors. As Alabama’s most environmentally-friendly building, the IC is built to achieve LEED Platinum and full Living Building Challenge (LBC) certifications and serve as the launching point for discovery and adventure.
