The Springville Fieldhouse

Springville City has created a new and unique recreation opportunity in the building that housed the old Springville swimming pool.

After the new Clyde Recreation Center with swimming pool opened, the old pool was drained, filled in with dirt, then covered with cement and turf. The building has now reopened as the new Springville Fieldhouse.

“It was an idea from the city leaders to transform it to make it useable,” said Recreation Coordinator Jody Gooch. “It’s a good way to use the space for now.”

The facility consists of one big field, a 100×100 ft. area that is netted and contained. It has been used for soccer, baseball, softball and lacrosse. Right now there are no goals or batting cages, though they may be in the plans for the future. No food or drink or metal cleats are allowed. “It’s still fairly new, we’re still figuring things out as we go,” said Gooch.

There is a rental fee of $55 an hour. The field is currently available from 4 to 10 Monday through Friday and on Saturday from 8 to 5. Payment is due when the reservation is made.
