This park is a lovely oasis in downtown Huntsville. Nice for strolling, feeding the fish and ducks or just hanging out. Not a lot of seating, but fair amount of shade. Be sure to take quarters for the fish food.

Good place to walk with the family. Bring change to buy food to feed the ducks. Overall, a good place to explore with the family then expand to surrounding areas that include places to eat. Looking forward to another visit.
