The historic town of Dothan, Alabama, built near the southeastern corner of Alabama in the 1800s, is as desirable as it gets. With plenty of industry and resources, Dothan is home to many who live and work in the area and cherish that Southern town feeling that cannot be faked. Though it is a suburb of Dothan, Park Ridge has a personality and presence all its own.
Less than 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Dothan, Park Ridge is a great, quiet location to plant your roots and build a home. It is also minutes from the interstate, making trips to the beach in Florida, Georgia, or Montgomery easy as pie.
