Jones Valley is an urbanized valley and region of Huntsville, Alabama. The community is bordered by Monte Sano Mountain and Green Mountain to the east and Waltons Mountain to the west.

Contents

Jones Valley houses a variety of homes, ranging from mid-century houses to mountaintop estates. A park called Jones Farm Park, sits adjacent to Carl T. Jones Drive. It contains miles of walking trails and two ponds. The Ledges, a private golf club and gated community, are also located in Jones Valley.

History

The area was founded by Carl T. Jones, who purchased a 2,500 acre farm in 1939. Although much of that land has been developed, 33 acres have been preserved and opened to the public as the Jones Farm Park. The park contains two ponds, a pavilion, and a system of paved walking trails.
