Update: This park is currently under construction. Read all about the new Kids Space coming soon!

Featuring tall castle-like structures and surrounded by large older trees, Kids Space offers a fun shaded area for kids to play. The wood structure features a variety of slides, climbing areas and more for kids to explore and even has areas suitable for both younger and older children.

Location: 2010 Airport Road

Amenities: Bathrooms, lots of shade and a good mix of play equipment for toddlers and older children. Plenty of benches and picnic tables (in sun and shade).

Mom’s Thoughts: Like Kids’ Kingdom in Dublin Park in Madison, this is Huntsville’s largest and arguably nicest play space. I had so many parents tell me about it and ask that I review it that I finally went to check it out despite the fact that it is on the completely opposite side of town. I’m glad I listened because this is a great place to know about even if you don’t live nearby. In the future, I’ll go out of my way to come back largely because I have a toddler and, unlike Dublin, there is as much here for toddlers as for the bigger kids.

Toddler Sized Fun Makes This Park A Must Visit

The area and equipment could use some refurbishing but that doesn’t take away from the bonuses the site offers. There are covered and uncovered slides here. Plenty of shade from the sun with benches and picnic tables scattered throughout. There is also a really nice mix of equipment with pieces I’ve not seen at the standard parks which is wonderful for people with older children. They won’t be bored here.

  • One caveat: Holy crap but it’s easy to lose your kid in those mazes. Thank goodness there’s just the one gate.
