The park was so nice! Love the 'Welcome to Huntsville' sign. The history on that spot, very cool! We walked all around and took lots of pictures!

Clean well kept park features a fresh water spring with waterfowl and abundant fish. The scenery is tranquil and serene. I didn't give it 5 stars because their is limited parking and no restroom facilities.
I wasn't sure where this spring was. It was an enjoyable walk around though. Nice to see people out and enjoying the space. Not much to do. Wanted to pop in somewhere and have a dinner and a drink and not much to choose from.
