South Huntsville, Alabama is getting a new park! The groundbreaking ceremony was held last week on the 52 acre site. It will begin with the first phase being a dog park that officials hope can be connected to the Aldridge Creek Greenway and McGucken Park. The dog park should be completed by the end of the year. The park is a joint venture between the city and the county. Future plans for the park includes multiple use sports fields, a Babe Ruth baseball field, disc golf, gymnasium and fitness center.
District 5 Madison County Commissioner Phil Riddick is supplying the land, fences and materials for paving. The city will provide the labor and build a pavilion.
