Enjoying Huntsville with your Toddler

Coming to Huntsville with your little one? Traveling with a toddler is always an interesting journey. We have a few places to let them get the energy out, and for you to have a great time!

Indoor Play


Let’s Play

  • Once your baby is crawling I highly recommend going to Let’s Play. The gym is open for them to crawl around like crazy. With different obstacles, they can create their own fun!
    • Each guest must wear socks and every child must have a parent with them. If you’re thinking of bringing baby and an older sibling, try to bring both parents!
    • For more information on hours and pricing, click here.

Parkway Place Mall

  • This indoor mall is more than food and stores, it has a great place for young kids to play!
    • If you are on a schedule and know that your little was get some food, play a little and then nap in the stroller while you shop this is a win-win situation!

Swimming and Splash Pads

Public Pools

There are swimming pools all over the place. All you need is an Otteroo and you and baby are set. The Otteroo is a float to help your baby’s first few times in the pool.

  • When trying to find pools, first see if you can book a hotel with one!

Splash Pads

  • If you want to do something a little different, check out the Splash Pads. There are some you can do a two for one like play at the park PLUS have a picnic by the water!
    • The best part about these public splash pads is the cost... FREE!
    • Both Bridge Street and the EarlyWorks Children’s Museum (Bicentennial Park Children’s Fountain is located just across the street from EarlyWorks) have splash pads for children to romp in.
    • Find more splash pads from Huntsville Parks and Recreation at Dr. Richard Showers, Sr. Recreation Center and Brahan Spring Park!

Art Class:


This was the funniest day of my life! Seeing baby girl make a mess of paint was incredibly fun. The best part? I didn’t have to clean it up!

  • When you walk in, you pay, then strip baby down to diaper. They sit on a mat, as pictured above, and go town with the paint.
  • You can click here to get a schedule of classes. The studio is great for ages 0 to around 8 years old.
