Legacy Park of Huntsville is a Local Gem

A brand new, $4.6 million park just opened at the former campus of JO Johnson High School in Huntsville, and it is a site to behold! Legacy Park in North Huntsville is a brand new unique recreational space for the entire community to enjoy. The playground’s main attraction is the eye-catching CLIMBING SPHERE, which sports a massive web of crisscrossing climbing ropes. This equipment provides versatile play activities, exploration, and high-capacity play for numerous children, all while working on those social and physical skills.

In addition to the aforementioned climbing sphere, the playground includes:

  • Two slides along a turf-grass hill.
  • A large slanting, rotating ring for turning, spinning and balancing.
  • A pendulum swing which is used to foster teamwork to make the swing move.
  • A swing set to include two rope swings, a shell seat swing for multiple kids to play on and two duo swings.
  • Small toddler/preschool play area with a playhouse, climbing net and music station.
  • Plenty of gliders for caregivers to sit and relax while watching their children at play.
  • Playground padding to help cushion falls and absorb the shock, helping to minimize the risk of serious injury.

The rest of this beautifully landscaped park includes lots of green space for tossing a ball, playing with bubbles, a picnic or just relaxing.  In addition, there are three pavilions which can be used for gatherings and birthday party rentals (contact the Johnson Legacy Center for reservations). Furthermore, the City of Huntsville also teamed up with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama to create a beautiful mural and fitness court for adults of all ages and adaptable for all fitness levels. This fitness court is designed to provide a full body workout in only seven minutes by rotating through all seven of the clearly marked zones. This playground is a true gem, and we cannot wait to go back.
