SINCE I WAS OUT THERE, NO TRESPASSING SIGNS HAVE BEEN POSTED!
PLEASE OBEY THE SIGNS AND DO NOT ENTER!
The park was built with community in mind. There is not much out there on the web about the place. There was much to do here in the time that it was open and the videos don’t do much service to a once great place. You get to see what is left.
1951 – Springs reopens Springs Park, built in 1940, to a record crowd of 25,000. Park is scene of Miss Spring and other talent contests, country music stars, square dance exhibitions. Boasts 3 mini trains and enormous amphitheater. This is one of many employee and community benefits the company sponsors and provides throughout its history.
And that’s what I have so far. I would love to update and record anything that anyone else might have. This should not just fade into obscurity. We lose so much of our history.
The site is soon to go under the blade of the bulldozer as I understand it. I hope that they preserve some of it. Perhaps the old pool will survive.
