Maintaining open space to enhance the quality of life for residents is a priority of the Springfield Township Board of Trustees. The township encourages preservation of open space and development of recreational facilities that meet the needs of the entire community.
The Public Works Department maintains 11 neighborhood parks and recreation areas, totaling 168 acres located throughout the township. These areas include baseball, soccer fields and football field space, 4 basketball courts, 3 tennis courts, and 7 horseshoe pits. Six of the parks offer picnic shelters that are available first come, first serve.
