There are many reasons to visit this park: both for the extensive, manicured trails, lake and waterfall browsing, or just admiring the natural scenery. However, frequently there are even more reasons to visit this park with their many festivities throughout the year. There is always plenty of parking, no matter how large the event, but you may have to do... More

It's always fun to take a walk around the big pond with my little sister, and there are stops where she can play. Or I can go alone and jog. People are usually friendly. In the summer, the flowers are absolutely beautiful. I love to go and take pictures just for fun.

It's the best park in Springfield for those that like to walk and see city nature. The best park for kids would be Rutledge Wilson Farm Park. Lots of trails and several attractions/areas within the park that are unique. I enjoy going there for a jog or bike ride. The kids love the ducks (which you aren't allowed to feed... More

There are so many things to do here, and the park is beautiful, With the lake, gardens, playgrounds, bike trails, butterfly house, and more you could spend hours here! In my opinion, this is Springfield's best park.

One of our favorite places to visit while in Springfield. They have been doing a lot of renovation and it shows. It is a beautiful ground and has a great walking/running trail around it.

There was a wedding party having a photo shoot the last time we were there. Our event was a ice cream social with friends. There were plenty of tables, shade, and open space to play bocce... More

Beautiful, well maintained grounds and gardens. Clean and felt safe. Great place to take pictures. Leashed dogs and doody bag stands around. Easy sidewalks. Benches and lots of grass to run and play, or take it easy. A pond to watch the geese floating on and looked like areas to enjoy events, though there was nothing going on when we... More

We love taking the kids and letting them explore and run and play and I love the beautiful backgrounds that I can catch in the pictures I take of my kiddo's.. We always have a great time when we go here.
