Huntington also is known for its expansive park system, the gem of which is Ritter Park. The park, which features a walking path, award-winning playground, tennis courts, amphitheater and PetSafe Dog Park, was recognized by the American Planning Association in 2012 as one America’s 10 Great Public Spaces. Since 1934, the park’s Rose Garden has been West Virginia's nationally-recognized municipal rose garden, containing 1,000 plants and noted for its All-American Rose Selections.
In the hills above Ritter Park is the Huntington Museum of Art. It is the largest art museum between Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Richmond and contains numerous collections, exhibitions, education programs and nature trails on a sprawling, 52-acre campus. The grounds also are home to the C. Fred Edwards Conservatory, West Virginia’s only plant conservatory.
