Updated for 2018 – There’s another splashpad in town, making it the fourth free water installation for kids that can be found in Huntsville! The Richard Showers Center opened the new water play area to the public, and it joins others at Bridge Street, Brahan Springs, and downtown’s Children’s Fountain behind Earlyworks.
North Huntsville families have been excited about this for a long time, and for good reason. It’s a great space that has been added to the popular Recreation Center – now you can swim in the indoor pool, check out books at the library, play some basketball in the gym or baseball on the fields, work out in the newly renovated weight room, AND stay cool at the splashpad!
