    NEW! 2016 Recreation Guide (130KB .pdf file)
    The City of Huntsville Parks and Recreation Department provides leisure time activities through a zone-based services concept. The City is divided geographically into four zones, each providing activities through recreation centers, parks and youth athletic leagues located within the zones. In addition, Huntsville’s Youth Services Program is housed in two of the City's recreation centers.

    The City of Huntsville also provides quality recreation facilities designed to encourage tourism and increase revenue through tennis, golf and aquatic programs, as well as through the operation of several disc golf courses, Hays Nature Preserve & Goldsmith Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary, Metro Kiwanis SportsPlex, Merrimack Soccer Complex, Splash Pad, Lydia Gold Skatepark and the City of Huntsville Dog Spot.

    In our efforts to provide recreational opportunities to all citizens of Huntsville, the Department offers a Special Populations program for the physically and mentally challenged from pre-school through senior citizens. This program originates in the Max Luther Community Center.

    Finally, the department is committed to provide wholesome family entertainment in a non-competitive atmosphere for leisure time enjoyment, in addition to striving to offer a continual program of city-wide events.
