Situated on the west side of Spring Hill City Lake, Veterans Park is located near U.S. 169 and Lone Elm Road. The lake covers about 40 acres and features a variety of fish, including crappie, blue gill, largemouth bass and channel cat. As part of the Community Fisheries Assistance Program, anglers who hold a state fishing license may fish here without a City permit.
Spring Hill voters approved a sales tax in 2008 to fund the construction of a new aquatic center (completed in 2010) and a new park along the west side of Spring Hill City Lake. City leaders worked to secure access to the park for several years, and now significant work has begun at the park.
While the park has been referred to as the West Lake Park during the early planning stages, the City Council voted in March 2016 to officially name the park &Spring Hill Veterans Park.&
Staff noted that the naming of a park is an opportunity to pay tribute to a local individual or group of individuals, and both City staff and the Green Board supported the idea of honoring our local veterans through the new park's name.
The park plan includes trails, fishing piers, a veterans memorial, Melvin Murry Dog Park, a playground, ADA accessible dock, a canoe launch, shelters and more. Staff broke ground on the first phase of the park in early 2018, clearing trees and brush for the site. In early fall 2019, a contract was approved with Mega Construction to begin construction at the park. The first phase of the park was completed in July 2020.
