Huntsville approves architectural contract for Hays Farm Central Park
HUNTSVILLE, AL – Plans for a new 9-acre urban park in South Huntsville are on track after the City’s approval of an architectural contract Tuesday.
Hays Farm Central Park will be in the Hays Farm development off South Memorial Parkway. The mixed-use project will contain single-and-multifamily housing units as well as commercial development and office space.
The $284,800 architectural contract between the City and Bostick Landscape Architects includes design of a restroom facility, gazebo, water feature and splash pad. The park’s conceptual design features several other quality-of-life amenities such as a playground, outdoor classroom, fitness area, gardens, walking paths and a connection to the City’s existing greenway network.
The park is a joint $5.6 million project between the City of Huntsville and Hays Family. The Hays family donated the property and $1 million toward the project. Bids for the park’s construction will be advertised this summer.
