Welcome to the epicenter of fun! Combining the arts, extreme sports, scenic nature and family-friendly amenities, you’re guaranteed to enjoy your time in Veterans Park. At the heart of these 17 acres is an impressive outdoor amphitheater just off the banks of Buck Creek, home of the annual Springfield Summer Arts Festival operated by the Springfield Arts Council.
Get up close and personal by bouldering along the cliff on the north side of the park, or take a splash in the white water play area. Kids love meeting Cinderella and riding in her pumpkin carriage on the playground, and young and old alike find something to love along the Buck Creek Scenic Trail. The park is also the site of the Springfield Art Museum.
