[ARCHIVED] Veterans Park plan approved by Council

Park Master Plan

A plan is in place for Spring Hill’s newest park.
At the Jan. 25 City Council meeting, members approved the Veterans Park design, created by Vireo. Veterans Park, located on the west side of Spring Hill City Lake, is the product of a 2008 sales tax increase voted on by Spring Hill residents. The concept of the park was to create an experience that would enhance the quality of life for individuals, families and the community as a whole.
The overall park design is set to include veterans’ memorial, shelters, a playground, grilling areas, a hiking trail, parking, a canoe launch and an ADA accessible dock among other features.
The first phase of the park will include parking installation, a playground, about one mile of hard surface walking trail, a fishing jetty and a start on the Veterans Memorial.
Beginning this month, dirt work will begin with the installation of a road, parking and playground equipment expected to be complete by April.
The park was kickstarted in 2016 with the installation of Veterans Lane, a curbed asphalt street off 199th Street leading into the park. City crews also cleared a path through the woods to Spring Hill Lake to offer a better picture of what might be encountered in developing the park. With a bid accepted from Vireo in 2017,  the design went through the Parks Advisory Board and the Spring Hill Planning Commission before appearing on the City Council agenda.
