Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly issued Executive Order 20-34 to move the state into a modified Phase 2 of the "Ad Astra: A Plan to Reopen Kansas" beginning Friday, May 22.
In Spring Hill, this means all City playgrounds will open. If you plan to use our playgrounds, please keep your distance of at least six feet; wash your hands after use and please do not visit our playgrounds if you are sick or have been sick within the last 14 days. At this time, City facilities remain closed to the public.
