Springfield Builds New City Park
Little Springs Park is Springfield's newest park. Officially opened last week, this new park boasts multiple sports fields, fishing pond stocked by the city, all abilities playground and outdoor theater. The theater will be used by local groups to put on plays, concerts and outdoor movies.
Mark Gantry, Director of the Springfield Parks and Recreation department, said, "Little Springs Park has been a pet project of mine for the past five years. So many people have come together to plan, fundraise and build this park. We have tried to put elements in the park that will be utilized by all members of the community."
