The park and splash pad have been full of happy children and families! We are so excited that everyone is able to enjoy free family fun right here in Springdale! Parking for the splash pad is designated on Lee Circle, right in front of the park fence. Signs have been posted for overflow parking that is available at the old Jewelry Warehouse building right beside Town Hall. Please refrain from parking behind Town Hall, in front of the Police Department.

With summer break in full swing and the splash pad running daily, we always see an influx of parties and big groups in our park. While we welcome them, we ask that you be courteous and clean up the mess you bring with you. We are very proud of our park and always welcome the fun but we are seeing more and more trash left behind. Please help us keep Springdale Park enjoyable for everyone.

We appreciate SRO Harrelson’s hard work in planning and facilitating this camp as well as the staff and volunteers who assisted her. The Town of Springdale is thankful for the wonderful opportunity to connect with the children in our community.
