The five major areas within the park's boundaries include: A 250-seat amphitheater with an 18-foot by 30-foot stage, wired for sound and light equipment; a re-creation of the original spring used by our founders; an upland woods area depicting the natural hardwood forest which once existed on the site, including a 10-foot by 120-foot historical mural covering the first 100 years of Springfield's citizens, buildings and local historical events; a historical timeline that describes the growth of Springfield during the first 100 years and how national and international events played a part in the city's development; and an area for native prairie grasses which existed on the nearby Kickapoo Prairie. The park is lit by a combination of area lighting and Victorian-style pedestrian fixtures. An ornamental seven-foot high steel picket fence provides security for the park.
