Space City was to be an outer space theme park fantasy based in Huntsville; it was to capitalize on space's growing popularity as putting man on the moon became closer and closer to reality. The park's construction began in January 1964.

Though a popular idea with the residents, the park ran into various difficulties and was never opened to the public or even fully completed. Construction was abandoned, and the land was put up for auction on October 17, 1967.
