It’s that time of year where the heat keeps getting higher. Fortunately, there are places in Huntsville where you can cool off and enjoy some refreshing environments. From pools to air-conditioned rooms, Huntsville has it all. Here are four spots to escape the heat during this scorching summer.

Bicentennial Park

Bicentennial Park sits right next to Big Spring Park and has an area for kids (and adults) to get splashed with water. At a time when we are all sweating in the sun, it feels so good when we drench ourselves with water, cooling off our hot skin. Next time you want to get wet, Bicentennial Park is the place to go.
