Cavalry Hill Opens New Playground

City of Huntsville FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 15, 2014
(Huntsville, AL) - Children in the Cavalry Hill neighborhood have a new playground - just in time for summer. Located on the site of the Academy for Academics & Arts, 2900 Fairbanks Street, the playground needed a complete renovation. It is also adjacent to the Cavalry Hill Community Center, which provides a host of recreational activities. Huntsville City Schools and the City of Huntsville's Parks & Recreation Department elected to share the $50,000 cost of improvements. They include:

  • Removing the old playground
  • Adding a sidewalk perimeter
  • Installing new playground equipment and safety surface
  • Renovating the Basketball Courts
  • Adding park benches
  • Adding security cameras
  • Renovating the access from the Center/School to meet ADA Requirements

    "This is another example of our continued partnership with Huntsville City Schools to improve our community spaces," said Mayor Tommy Battle. "This playground benefits the children of AAA, the community center, and the neighborhood."

    The playground renovation was initiated by Yvonne Holley, a member of the community, who brought the issue to the attention of the City and School Board. In addition to Huntsville City Schools Operations, City departments involved in the project include: Parks and Recreation, General Services - Facilities Projects, Engineering, Public Works and Landscape Management.
