Description: Spring Rock Park has several features that are different depending upon the section of the park. The northeast quadrant is the oldest section and has the highest elevation. A large mature stand of a variety of species to include Oak, Elm, Ash and Pine trees provide a base for excellent passive recreation. The southeast section is the location of three old well sites from which the name Spring Rock Park was derived. The western half of this park presents a unique subsoil condition with a peat moss base that was subsequently used as an ash dump and then covered by top soil. The southwest quadrant is the lowest and allows for gradual percolation of ground waters from the park. The western boundary lies adjacent to Flagg Creek and beyond that an eight lane interstate highway. An earthen berm and mature stand of trees stands between to soften highway noise and provide a pleasant visual setting.
