About the Foundation

Springfield has nearly 40 neighborhood, community and regional parks. The Foundation works closely with the Park Board, City of Springfield, other state and local agencies, the business community and individuals to provide support and funding for many park projects. Foundation projects include park restoration, landscape improvement and commemoration.
