Big Spring Park Reviews & Ratings
This is a beautiful, huge park. I highly recommend bringing quarters so that you can feed the ducks. They have duck food vending machines. The benches do get a bit hot in the Alabama summer heat, so I'd recommend bringing a blanket to sit on the ground. It's very conveniently located, so it works well as a stop as part of a longer day.
The city has spent some time and money improving the park and it was worth it. The "hub" of activity in Huntsville. Come run, walk or relax and people watch. Bring a picnic, listen to jazz or concerts in the park. Feed the fish. If Huntsville has a heartbeat, Big Spring Park is it.
Go there regularly. Great family friendly location. Now it’s fall, great place to walk or just chill. Have a picnic , feed the fish, just have some down time.
Always a nice place to walk with family and pets if you have them. We try to go as often as we can on really nice days whenever the park isn't really crowded for events. It is a beautiful place with lots of koi and other fish in the lake and usually all kinds of birds and Ducks of all sizes. We were very happy to see all the young ducklings happily swimming with their mother and another with her ducklings nearly old enough to go out on their own. There are lots of places to rest as you walk around the park and places that are in the shade near the beautiful fountains as well. Really nice in the evenings when its all lit up too. Only problem is parking at times especially for disabled drivers there are no where near enough spots for them. Hopefully they will take that into consideration with all the new construction going up in the area.
Affordable street parking. Pay with credit card. Neat fountain with ducks and fish. Lots of green space and paved pathways.
