It just goes to show how awesome our staff is and the hard work that they put in on a daily basis to keep our parks up-to-date and clean and manicured on a regular basis.

“We are very thankful that the additions added to the parks department in the last five years are being recognized (not only) by the citizens of Springfield but also by the Tennessee municipal league.
