Parks & Leisure


The purpose of Parks Maintenance is to provide quality maintenance of City-owned parks, cemeteries, and recreational facilities to citizens and visitors so they can enjoy and safely utilize park facilities.


Parks Maintenance is responsible for maintaining the City parks, baseball fields, softball fields, soccer fields, football fields, and other recreation-related facilities, such as the Aquatic Center and the Martin Luther King Center, and the Oakwood Cemetery.


Major City-owned parks include Eastham-Thomason Park, Kate Barr Ross Park and Emancipation Park. Other pocket or neighborhood parks are scattered throughout the City.


Parks Maintenance also provides grounds keeping services at City facilities such as City Hall, the City Service Center, the Huntsville Police Department, and the Huntsville Public Library.
