Apollo Park is a 40-acre municipal park on the westside of Huntsville, Alabama. Bookended by a top golf driving range and High Point climbing and fitness facility to the north and then the tvg-designed Orion Amphitheater to the south, all integrated via a functional lake system, Apollo Park is therefore a wide ranging third space offering for this rapidly growing area. tvg has worked with the City of Huntsville since 2018 to bring the vision to life and the project is complemented to the east by a remarkable mixed-use redevelopment called MidCity which is launching over 350,000 sqft of retail, dining & entertainment, 400,000 sqft of new office space, 1,600 residential units and 650 hotel rooms. Apollo South is tvg’s dedicated year-round food and beverage hub in the park, sitting in the shadow of the Orion and boasts a variety of food offerings, bars and public space for people to enjoy.
As a venue itself, The Orion Amphitheater – an 8000-capacity destination venue inspired by the grand open-air amphitheaters of Ancient Greece – is further supported by three stories of unique concessions ranging from the Madkin & Weeden tap rooms through to Isadora’s wine bar, El Cohete Taco & Tequila, and the dramatic sky bar with immense views, not only of the stage and the performer but also the surrounding landscape.
The Orion Amphitheater opens on May 6, 2022.
