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.

This is a hidden gem in Springfield! Many garden areas to peruse and admire all without costing a penny like other botanical gardens in other cities. I'm disappointed that I didn't get to walk around and see as much of it as I would have liked but if I was a local resident this would be a favorite hangout for... More

We walked around the grounds, lovely plants well labeled and well tended. Such a nice variety of hostas, lillies and other flowers. A peaceful lake with geese and ducks.

THis is my favorite Springfield park. It has so much to offer. We had our family photos taken here in the hosta garden and in front of the lake. Also have taken kids here to play.

Loved the 26 themed gardens especially the rose, white, hosta and English gardens. Drummond Lake with the canadian geese and mallards swimming along very peaceful. Plenty of benches throughout to sit on and reflect. Butterfly house (seasonal), beautiful. Garden-themed playground equipment. Gray/Campbell Farmstead very interesting. Disliked having only one pavilion with restrooms in all 113 acres.

I visit here with my family when I am in town and I was surprised the last time I went (July 2014) how many updates they have made. It is such a beautiful park! They have added many little areas with flowers and bridges and trees. Very well done. I love going here.

Our grandson loves the playground with the merry-go-around. When he comes to visit we have to go here every day but it's fun to sit and watch him have a great time. We've biked and walked around here. They have a great botanical garden, butterfly place, pond, and paths. It's fun to walk or bike along the path that has... More
