Parks & Recreation

The Spring Lake Improvement District oversees parks and recreation areas. Pine Breeze Park, located next to the District Office, provides tennis courts, basketball courts, picnic areas, playground equipment, and a community center residents may use free of charge, but requires a deposit. Several other parks throughout the community offer amenities as well. Arbuckle Creek Park is located at the junction of Arbuckle Creek and Lake Isktopoga and has a boat ramp, fishing pier, picnic area, and restroom. It is available free of charge by securing a lock code from the District Office. The park in Village VIII, Lakeside Estates, is privately owned and operated by the Homeowners Association.
