COVID-19 update: Parks remain open! Playgrounds re-opened Friday, May 22.
Spring Hill’s quality outdoor recreational facilities are a top reason why the city is frequently praised as a great place for families.
Whether you’d like to take in beautiful scenery on a walk, scale a towering playground, go for a swim, or angle some crappie, there are ample opportunities to do so through our parks system.
City Parks crews are responsible for maintaining Spring Hill’s seven City parks:
- Aquatic Center Park
- Blackhawk Park
- Celia Dayton Park
- City Park
- Friendship Park
- Woodland Ridge Ponds
- Veterans Park
- Melvin Murry Dog Park at Veterans Park
Parks staff also provide grounds maintenance and landscaping for City Hall, the Spring Hill Aquatic Center, the Civic Center, the Community Center, the north and south Welcome signs, City roadsides and other locations.
Comprehensive Park Master Plan
The Spring Hill City Council adopted the 2020 Parks and Recreation Master Plan on Sept. 24, 2020. The purpose of this Parks Master Plan is to develop a community- supported comprehensive plan that provides guidance for the Parks Department and Spring Hill Recreation Commission over the course of the next 10 years.
On June 26, 2008 the Spring Hill City Council adopted the Comprehensive Park Master Plan. The plan was designed to strengthen commitments to a strong park and trail system, recreation facilities, and recreation programs through the City of Spring Hill, the Spring Hill School District, and the Spring Hill Recreation Commission.
Since the 2008 plan’s adoption, the City of Spring Hill has taken great strides to accomplish its recommendations. The Spring Hill Aquatic Center, a state-of-the-art facility with more than a dozen attractions, opened in 2010, and many upgrades have been made to existing parks. Veterans Park and Melvin Murry Dog Park also opened in July 2020.
