It is the mission of the Spring Lake Recreation & Parks Department to address quality of life issues through successful implementation of planned leisure activities for children, adults and senior adults and through well planned, constructed and maintained recreation facilities and park system.
The Spring Lake Multipurpose Community Center, located at 245 Ruth Street, is a state of the art facility that offers something for all ages. Adjacent to the Community Center is the Spring Lake Path to Fitness (The Walking Trail.) It is a safe and scenic way to get fit!
The Spring Lake Park System offers something for everyone of every age. Park facilities include Mendoza Park, Wilson Avenue Park, Odell Road Park and Ruth Street Park. From playground equipment to basketball courts to picnic tables to baseball fields, the Parks in Spring Lake are not only well maintained, they offer outdoor fun for all
