The Big Spring International Park is a public park in Huntsville, Alabama. It is also simply known as the Big Spring Park, named after the ?Big Spring?, a large underground karst spring, which is the original water source that the city was built around. The Big Spring served as the primary water source of Huntsville from its founding to the first half of the 20th century. It is also the largest limestone spring in all of North Alabama.

The Big Spring International Park features a series of items, most of which are gifts from other countries and foreign nationals. These include the 1903 light beacon and a 1929 fog bell from Norway, a red Japanese bridge from Major General Mikio Kamata, a bench from the UK, and a sundial from Germany just to name a few.

The Big Spring International Park is also home to the Panoply Arts Festival and the Big Spring Jam.
