This park is very nice. All of the landscaping is very well done. At Christmas, this place is really beautiful.

“Absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed 28 March 2013 via mobile

Very pretty and easy to find. A good place for a picnic or a break from a stroll around the town. Bring quarters to feed the ducks and fish.

“Downtown Hotspot”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

I like taking my son here to feed the ducks and fish. It is great exercise for both of us, and he has a blast. The park is divided into two parts, the road that divides it is VERY busy, so grab your kids hand. The excessive amount of duck/goose poop makes it really gross to walk the side walks during certain times, and if you have a stroller, I would advise you not to use it if the sidewalks are covered in crap. The poop will dry up on the wheels and get in your trunk, and smell forever.

“Great Park!”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Traveling in for a Volleyball Tournament, we were impressed with the area and the beauty of the park. The relaxing atmosphere was a welcome respite from the volleyball chaos inside the Von Braun Center. Huntsville should be proud of their park!

“A happening spot”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

There are several areas to see in this park. The ducks, the nearby attractions, and often has special setups such as an outdoor skating rink during winter, bands, and tinsel trail (trail of Christmas Trees) to name a few.
