I love this area for wildlife viewing and walking, but all of that is possible without the boathouse. The boathouse could serve the needs of the community by housing a small coffee bar much like Springfield Public Libraries do. I’d be there nearly every morning...More

The marina is boring, not a lot to see there. The park itself is spread out and does not have a lot of unique features but is good to get away to just sit and think, read, or visit with a friend. There is plenty...More

I think this area is overlooked by many and I don't mind since it is near my house! I can take a lovely walk through this area and feel almost like it belongs to just me! You can rent small boats or launch your own,...More

Lake Springfield is a great place to fish with a number of docks available. But it's also a great place to paddle your canoe or kayak. I live close by and often take my kayak out on the lake for a 1-2 hour paddle. Although...More

Instead of sitting on the couch we decided to go to the Lake and check out the trails. Lots of open areas for activities and trails to hike. Some nice views overlooking part of the lake from the bluffs. Kids saw all kinds of wildlife,...More

I have visited this park several times in the spring summer and fall. I like the hiking trail. It is long enough to feel I got exercise and the variety of terrain surface, pitch, shade/open space and the view is satisfying. There are multiple activities...More
