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

Vireo presented an updated Comprehensive Parks Master Plan to the Spring Hill City Council Sept. 10, 2020. The City Council will consider adoption of the plan at a future meeting. 

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 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.
