We have an enjoyable new option for family fun down 431 a piece from Huntsville. Lake City is an amusement park that opened in southern Guntersville this spring. It follows the classic model, with rides, a midway of games, and fun things to eat.
Swan Creek Park in Athens has three pavilions, small playground, for tennis courts, horseshoe pit, restrooms, and access to the Athens Rec Center Track, which is 1.53 miles.
The North Alabama Land Trust’s “Tuesdays On the Trail” program is a wonderful way for even the busiest of families to spend some time together outdoors. Don’t tell the kids… you’ll learn a lot about local environmental education too!
