Huntsville City leaders have approved an expansion to Big Spring Park which will be located at the old city hall building on Fountain Circle.

Last week, Huntsville City announced that it would be approving a design contract with Bostick Landscape Architects to oversee the expansion of Big Spring Park.

While a design is still in the works, it’s expected to include two to three terrace plaza levels, a pavilion, new sidewalk/hardscape connections to Church Street, new landscaping and irrigation, additional lighting, and electrical infrastructure.

Speaking about the Big Spring Park expansion, Mayor Battle said, “As our downtown thrives, so does the need for recreational spaces.”

He continued, “This property presents an opportunity to expand Big Spring Park, solidifying its position as a cherished City landmark. By enlarging the footprint, we provide an even larger public space for everyone to enjoy.”

The Big Spring Park expansion won’t be happening any time soon though, as the old city hall building isn’t scheduled to be demolished until early 2025.

Bostick Landscape Architects has agreed to have an initial design for the expansion complete by September 14, 2024.
