Blue Springs State Park has a new playground. Thanks to a lot of hard work from The Friends of Blue Springs State Park, and a generous donation from the estate of the late Dr. Mac W. Porter, the new playground was dedicated November 8th 2014. Made of 100% recycled plastics and rubber, the playground is fully ADA approved. A large sandbox was added to the park as well. The sand for the sandbox was donated by Lil Dippers, a business local to the area. The play equipment was bought through Spencer Creek Recreation out of Atlanta, Georgia, who also handled the onsite assembly.
