After a day of flying I was sore and needed a long walk in the cool afternoon . I found this great park, great for a stretch and light jog. This park is a wonderful place to visit, great view. Enjoy the huge fish in the ponds and grab a fresh breath and view.....

the city is putting a lot of effort into re-landscaping the park around the spring and pond. Lots of Pokestops there. The spring is historic and very pretty. Central to renovated downtown.

We were attending a competition at the Von Braun Center. This park is right across the street and in the middle of the city. A few plackards/sign with Huntsville history. Be sure to walk all the way over to the fountain and steps. (Stop at the Cozy Cow for a coffee too.)

I went there expecting a Big park and a Big spring: It's a very small area in downtown Huntsville. It's quaint but definitely does NOT live up to its name. There's appears to be a man-made lake & a man-made creek across the street. The ducks & fish were very cute.

This is a nice little park right downtown. There are planty of places to sit and watch the fish, ducks, etc. I recommend getting food to go at Cozy Cow across the street and having lunch here on a nice day!

My husband and I love taking the kids here during the summer. We enjoy concerts in the park and the kids love the duck pond.

Located near lots of nice shops and restaurants this is a great place to walk, jog or spread out on a blanket and read. Be sure to visit the ducks and fish!
