Woodland Ridge park earns new name

The ponds at Woodland Ridge are now known by a new name: Legacy Park.

The City Council voted Nov. 12 to approve the Parks Advisory Board's recommended name change of the park to Legacy Park, 20705 Barker Road. The park was previously known as Melvin Murry Park. The Melvin Murry name was transferred to the City's new dog park at Veterans Park, 20201 Veterans Lane, Spring Hill, in July 2020. 

The Parks Advisory Board was tasked by the City Council to consider renaming the Woodland Ridge park area and to develop a program to celebrate exemplary residents of Spring Hill who have had a positive impact on the city through community service, contributions and citizenship. 

The board will continue to develop a vision for the park area. The current plan includes improvements at the park such as walking trails, parking area, benches and landscaping. The Parks Advisory Board would serve as a review committee, evaluating the accomplishments of individuals nominated for recognition within the park. Those that embody the legacy of community spirit will be honored with plaques on benches or inscribed brick pavers. The park will then become an area to celebrate the positive impact felt from the lives of exemplary residents.
