The Springdale Splash Pad is open everyday from 10 am to 8 pm! Also, just a reminder, there is no charge and although we do welcome them, we do not reserve park shelters for parties or other events.
Stormwater Inspection Notification
Dear Springdale Residents:
Starting next week, the teams you see in the field are on official business for the Town of Springdale during the hours of 8:00am and 8:00pm seven days a week. These teams are contractors for the Town and will be inventorying the Town’s stormwater system. Portions of the Town’s stormwater system can only be accessed by crossing private property. Where our crews need to cross your property, we greatly appreciate your support and patience allowing them access.
What is the stormwater system? The stormwater system is a network of inlets, pipes, ditches, and outlets designed to carry stormwater runoff to streams. The graphic below is a simple stormwater system network.
Why is the Town inventorying the stormwater system? The Town is responsible for maintaining the stormwater system draining Town and County roads and Town-owned properties. This stormwater inventory project will help the Town and County better maintain the Town’s inlets, pipes, ditches, and outlets.
For any questions, please contact Springdale Town Hall at 794-0408.
During the Tuesday May 7, 2019 Council meeting, members of our Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals and Design Review Board were recognized for their dedication and contributions to the Town of Springdale. Hors d’oeuvres were served before the meeting and there was great fellowship and conversation among all who attended. The Town of Springdale wishes to extend our deepest gratitude to the members of our boards and commissions.
Last week the collaborative vegetable garden at Springdale Elementary was completed. Our Public Works department assisted the 2nd and 3rd grade students with planting tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, okra and a variety of herbs. The students will take turns maintaining the garden. What an exciting project!
Just a reminder – On March 5th, 2019, the Springdale Town Council passed Ordinance 0-19-03, an Ordinance providing for a Local Hospitality Tax on the Sales of Prepared Meals and Beverages in Establishments in the Town of Springdale. Establishments in the Town that sell prepared meals and beverages were required to begin collecting the 2% Local Hospitality Tax starting on May 1, 2019. The town will use these funds for tourism-related activities and improvements. The Town of Springdale appreciates all of our local businesses and what they contribute to the quality of life in our town. If you have any questions regarding the Local Hospitality Tax, please contact Municipal Clerk, Leeann Eden at 803-794-0408.

The splash pad will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. seven days a week. We have had a lot of inquiries to the opening date and we are very excited for it to be open. There are two new additions to the splash pad this year, a round toddler table that sprays water from the center of the table and a tree dome like accessory that allows the water to run down the dome and onto the children. There is no cost to enjoy the splash pad so come on out and have some fun! Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Tickets for the CMRTA’S COMET bus are available for purchase at Town Hall. An informational pamphlet is available at Town Hall that outlines the routes and services of the COMET.
