Beavercreek Parks, Recreation & Culture is hosting a volunteer opportunity on Monday, July 31, at 6 p.m. at the City of Beavercreek’s newest and largest park, Spring House Park! With the help from volunteers, parks staff aims to create new trails and remove invasive species on the new parkland. This event is open to volunteer groups and individuals, who are encouraged to complete a volunteer form on the city’s website at beavercreekohio.gov/volunteer. No experience is necessary as staff will provide instructions and tools.
“The creation of these trails serves as an integral first step in bringing the park’s master plan to life,” said Pete Landrum, city manager. “We are setting the foundation for a park that will offer a wide range of recreational experiences for our residents. We invite everyone to be a part of this exciting endeavor and contribute to the creation of a vibrant and welcoming community space."
Spring House Park's master plan includes various amenities that cater to diverse interests and age groups. The plan includes natural areas, paved and unpaved hiking trails, playgrounds, picnic shelters, a splash pad, a dog park, disc golf facilities, pickleball courts, multi-sport fields, basketball courts, an outdoor fitness area, an archery area, an overlook shelter with a fire pit, event space, a retention pond featuring fishing docks, and restrooms. Beavercreek City Council will make a decision on whether to place a park levy on the Nov. 7 ballot to fund the development of Spring House Park and ongoing maintenance for other city parks during their council meeting on Monday, July 24.
Additionally, the city is also hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, August 23, at 6 p.m. at the park. This ceremony is open to the public and parking will be available in a gravel parking lot located along Patterson Road. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the park’s new trails.
“The city is excited to celebrate the opening of Spring House Park,” said Kim Farrell, parks superintendent. "We are looking forward to seeing families, friends, and neighbors enjoy this beautiful park and create lasting memories.”
