The City of Huntsville is increasing its budget for the new Hays Farm Park in South Huntsville.
Huntsville upped its commitment from $3.6 million to $4.6 million for construction and development of the nine-acre park on Haysland Road. In turn, Hays Farm developer, Hylis Inc., led by John Hays, will provide another $1 million toward the project, bringing the total budget to $5.6 million.
The additional funding, approved by City Council through an amended development agreement, will allow the City to fully realize the intended scope of the park. While still in the design phase, the park will include a children’s playground, potential splash pad, walking trails, lake, and lawn space for community events and outdoor gatherings.
