Big Spring Park
Beautiful outdoor scenery. We love going here just to unwind or enjoy the outdoor concerts.
A great place to walk around and enjoy a little bit of downtown Huntsville. We love to take quarters with us and feed the ducks and fish!
Enjoy a walk, feed the ducks, marvel at the koi! Lot's of great dining nearby!
Check out Big Spring Park, grab some food at one of the local options and then check out a Havoc game or a concert at the VBC. You can get anywhere on foot from the park.
Located in the middle of downtown, with a museum, duck and fish pond and historical live fresh water spring
