City of Huntsville Refurbishes Kids Space
Bring the children out to picnic and play!


City of Huntsville December 6, 2012
Huntsville, AL -When a park is well loved it is well used. Such is the case with Kids Space on Airport Road. After 18 years of play, the children's playground and picnic areas were in need of refurbishment. The synthetic surface surrounding the play equipment was deteriorating and a number of surfaces needed a fresh coat of paint.

Today, visitors to Kids Space will see newly painted restrooms and play equipment, new lighting, and new rubberized walkways to properly cushion the jumps and tumbling of energetic children. The City of Huntsville's Parks & Recreation Department has spent more than $30,000 on upgrades to maintain the popular park.

"The Kids Space playground began as one parent's dream in the early 90s, and it is here today through the efforts of hundreds of families and citizens who worked to make it a reality," said Mayor Tommy Battle. "We are pleased to reinvigorate the park and maintain it for our children."

The City is committed to providing playgrounds across Huntsville so that children have easy access to outdoor recreation and play.

"Safe, clean and well-maintained playgrounds help keep our children fit and healthy," said Recreation Manager Steve Ivey. "We encourage all of our parents to visit a playground with their children as often as they can."
