Take aim! Huntsville has its first free public archery facility.


Southside Park had an official ribbon cutting, Tuesday. The park is located on Chaney Thompson Road.

The city, county, state and private organizations worked together to develop the park.

"The thing we are most excited about is another project we have done in cooperation with multiple entities that none of us could have done on our own by ourselves," Madison County Commissioner Phil Riddick told WAAY 31 News.

The archery park is the 14th to open in Alabama. The range is free to use for people under age 16 and over age 65.

Anyone else must have a hunting license, wildlife management area license or wildlife heritage license.

The Huntsville Sports Commission told WAAY 31 they are looking into hosting competitions at the new archery park.
