Helping neighbors of all ages connect
Huntland is a rural town with a population of just over 800 located slightly north of the Alabama-Tennessee state line. Community members wanted a new inclusive playground for the park in the town center, and after working to raise money locally, they applied for a grant from the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation.
The BlueCross Healthy Place at Huntland City Park will house a newly constructed, fenced playground with plenty of seating, just as community members requested. It will feature accessible equipment designed for children of all abilities.
But we’re also building more than that.
When completed, the space will include an upgraded pavilion to provide community members with a place for celebrations and gatherings, as well as a basketball court with bleachers, outdoor fitness equipment, a new walking track, additional parking, water fountains, picnic tables and grills.
