Artesian Wells – Prattville was originally nicknamed “The Fountain City” as a result of its large collection of artesian wells. While some of these wells have been capped or ceased to flow, many still welcome the public to enjoy a drink of their sweet, mineral-rich water. Notable wells are located at Heritage Park, in the backyard of the Prattaugan Museum & Heritage Center and in the tin-roofed wellhouse on Doster Road.

Autauga Bluebird Trail – Birders enjoy visiting the Autauga Bluebird Trail along Highway 14 in Autauga and Elmore Counties.

The main trail starts behind City Hall (mile 6) and ends at Canoe Trail Park (mile 2). Access additional information at www.autaugacreek.org.
