- About Us
Springfield Township maintains in excess of 117 acres of permanently protected open space for active and passive recreation purposes. It is the philosophy of the Board of Commissioners to offer free access* to all of our recreation areas.
*Note: Township residents enjoy reduced membership rates at Flourtown Country Club as well as limited access for golfing and swimming if they do not maintain an active membership.

The township is currently accruing funds to construct a recreation pavilion that will house a concession stand, storage facilities and restrooms for park users. The park purchase was made possible through a grant from the Montgomery County Open Space Preservation Program. Google Map

A massive park rehabilitation project was completed in 1999 which included dredging the pond, stabilizing the stream channels, installing new park benches, shade trees and refuse containers and the replacement of an eight foot chain-link fence with a more park-like post-and-rail fence.

Springfield Township accepted ownership of Sandy Run Park in May 1999 from the United States Department of the Interior. Formerly known as the Cascetti Quarry, mining operations ceased in 1958 after a snowstorm knocked power from the region and the quarry hole filled with water. The United States Navy most recently used the 14-acre facility for underwater sonar testing. Before opening the facility to the public, the Township plans to hire a consulting firm to develop a Comprehensive Park Master Plan to ensure safe access and use of the park. Google Map
