My sons enjoyed feeding the ducks, but trying to park in that area was a bit of a challenge. We were competing with a concert for parking. Please be sure to use a bit of caution to avoid the duck poo.

I just found this place by accident. I was walking around downtown Huntsville (which is well preserved) and offers great photo opportunities. I heard water and started walking down these stairs and found this oasis of water. There was this cute little lion statute that was dedicated to the children that played in the park. I watched a little girl sit and talk to the lion...this truly is a magical place.

Very nice park and very relaxing place to jog and stroll in the morning or afternoons. Kids will enjoy for sure.

The big spring is a nice photo op location for visitors with the rock wall backdrop. I like watching the goldfish (koi?) swim up and down the little water channel that goes across the street into the big lake/pond where all the ducks like to gather and waddle around. If you visit you have to walk across the Japanese red bridge that was gifted to the city by then Lieutenant Colonel Mikio Kimata back in the 60's. Take a look at the calendar of events to check if there is a live music or other event going on when you come to visit!
