[ARCHIVED] Veterans Park to open July 4

Veterans Park walkway

Get ready to spend your Independence Day morning with us at our newest amenity, Veterans Park! 

At 10:30 a.m. July 4, we will host a grand opening for the lakeside park, 20201 Veterans Lane, near 199th Street and Veterans Lane about a mile west of U.S. 169. 

Come explore the park after a ribbon cutting and words from Mayor Steven Ellis. We’ll have cookies and new design elements for public viewing. Take a slide down at the playground. Cast a line from the shoreline of Spring Hill City Lake. Bring a kayak down our new boat ramp. Have your pup tag along for a romp at Melvin Murry Dog Park. 

Members of the public are invited to join the celebration! Social distancing measures will still be in effect if ordered by State of Kansas or Johnson County. The park will remain open until 10 p.m. July 4. Remember: Fireworks are not allowed in public parks! Save those for your at home celebration! Regular park hours will be 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. 

Veterans Park was approved by Spring Hill residents as a special sales tax initiative in 2008. That special sales tax funded the construction at the Spring Hill Aquatic Center, the construction and design of Veterans Park as well as Phase II of Veterans Park, which is currently in the design stage. Phase II will include a veterans memorial plus more. 

In early 2020, the City received a large donation from the Knaebel family for the veterans memorial. The City is working with several families, the American Legion and Vireo, the design firm, to bring these ideas to fruition.
