Mayor to cut ribbon for playground at Huntsville’s Sandra Moon Complex

HUNTSVILLE – A ribbon-cutting will celebrate the opening of the playground at the Sandra Moon Community Complex.

“March to the Playground’’ is set for Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the site of the former Grissom High School that has been repurposed. The playground covers 18,000 square feet and features artificial turf and rubber safety surfacing with a rocket ship and other climbing and play structures.

There are slides, swings, a swinging merry-go-round, sensory dome and sensory wave arch. Adults will find ample benches and sunshades. The fully fenced and ADA-accessible park is one of many recreational activities available at the Sandra Moon Community Complex.

“Just in time for the holidays, we are delighted to present this amazing playground to the children of Huntsville,” Mayor Tommy Battle said. “We hope it will bring joy and inspire imagination for many years to come.”

The $740,000 playground is included in Phase 3 of the city’s master renovation plan for the complex. The price tag includes a $180,00 donation by Madison County Commissioner Phil Riddick.

Prior to the ribbon-cutting, the South Huntsville Public Library at the complex is hosting “March to the Playground,” a singalong and puppet show with Santa and Mrs. Claus at 1:30 p.m. Following the festivities, children and attendees will march to the new playground to celebrate the grand opening.
