Nice place to go during any season. In the winter, the park is decorated with Christmas trees. In the spring, summer, and fall, it's just a nice place to hang out. Sometimes, you will run into live musical performers. Frequently, there are hungry ducks in...More

Share an afternoon with ducks, geese, and nature. There is always new additions, and beautifications done. Lovely in the spring with the flowering trees along the water

This is a beautiful park in downtown Huntsville, appropriately sized (my opinion) for City like Huntsville. Convenient walking trails, small spring-fed lake, nicely (and photographically appealing) landscape. Close to HSV Museum, fine dining (Cotton Row, The Bottle) as well as more casual pub-style restaurants.
