Roverud Park is the city’s nature park. It features a paved walking path, and a bridge (often with running water). This park is often used by school children to explore nature. A great spot to rollerblade or just pause and unwind.
Ball Field - (3rd St SW)
The city of Spring Grove also provides Blayne Onsgaard Memorial Field. This sporting complex is home to our summer recreation baseball and soccer programs.
