#GoPlayHsv – Parks & Recreation Month



Huntsville’s parks and recreation services are an essential component of the community’s physical and mental wellbeing. Through this year’s theme, “We Are Parks and Recreation,” the department will explore its diverse offerings and recognize the team of professionals working to serve and support public play opportunities. They will turn the spotlight on dedicated volunteers and partner organizations and publish stories from citizens who regularly use park amenities.



Submit Your Experience! Parks & Recreation wants to hear from Huntsville citizens about how you “get your play on” in Huntsville.

Let us know by sending your experience and a picture or video to Ashley.Polesak@HuntsvilleAL.gov, or tag Huntsville Parks & Recreation and use the hashtag #GoPlayHsv throughout July on Instagram and Facebook.

We want to see how you’re enjoying our facilities such as parks, greenways, pools, splash pads, recreation centers, pavilions and more.

If we share your picture or video, you’ll receive a Huntsville Parks & Recreation t-shirt on us.

COVID-19 has shone a light on the essential role of local parks and recreation play in the well-being of our community. In response to the pandemic, park and recreation professionals worked quickly to keep parks, trails and green spaces open to support the physical and mental health of residents while delivering vital services and programs to support the community.

National Recreation and Park Association and the City of Huntsville are dedicated to championing park and recreation professionals, advocates and decision-makers to bring needed investment, recognition and dedication to sustain these important spaces and services.

Parks & Recreation Month helps to provide the community with all of the information they need to enjoy the City’s parks and recreation amenities.
