“Great park for adults, kids and dogs!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

I used to live within a mile of the park and spent a lot of time here running. My kids could play on the playground, throw frisbees, ride bikes or play soccer. There is a great dog park, too! Convenient location to town with incredible views of the mountain...very nice. There is a fee for dog park membership.

“A treasure!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Willow Springs Park is a safe, family-friendly park that is a real treasure! The paved trails (with some unpaved that go through the woods, make for great walking and the scenery is unbeatable! The walking path is fairly flat, but with enough climb to make it a gentle workout. The playground is great for the little ones. All in all it doesn't get much better than this!

“Great for the family and the doggies!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Willow Springs is a great place to have a picnic, take a walk, let the kids play and even the dogs.
With a great view of Buffalo mountain, it's a wonderful place to throw a blanket down and have a picnic.
There is a great play ground for the kids. And the walking trails are great.
They also have a place for Fido to play too.

“Spacious, beautiful, clean, appropriate for all ages.”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Willow Springs Park is a beautiful, clean, spacious property that gives the visitor various options to pass the time during any season of the year. For the fitness-minded: paved paths for running/walking; a sandy volleyball court; a paved basketball court. For nature-lovers: a great view of the mountains, a natural path through the woods, a pond with fish and turtles, and, during late summer, blackberries for the picking! For families with children: a playground with picnic pavillion, a picnic table gazebo with an awesone view of the mountains
, and plenty of wide-open space to fly kites, throw ball, or spread a blanket for the little ones to play on. As a dog owner who is not a member of the private, gated dog park there, my beagle and I enjoy on-leash walks on the paths/trails and the convenience of the "clean-up stations" located throughout the park that are equipped with bags and waste bins.

There are no water fountains, so bring your own water. I have never seen "riff-raff" hanging out at this park but I always see families, couples, and individuals of varying races and ages having a great time enjoying this Johnson City jewel.
