What better way to spend a hot summer day in South Carolina than with water and a few friends? At the Felton C. Benton Park, children can spend the dog days of summer staying cool in the always popular splash pad. This park has been providing quality recreation for all the children of Springdale since soon after the incorporation of the town in 1955.
If playing in the splash pad doesn’t suit, then perhaps a game of tennis will be better? At the Springdale Park & Tennis Center, there is sure to be a court available for individuals of all skill levels. Local residents have been known to give a free lesson a time or two as well.
Dedicated teachers, engaged parents, and eager students are the three ingredients that set Springdale's schools a part from those found in other parts of the state. Lexington School District Two operates three schools that serve the citizens of Springdale: Springdale Elementary School, R.H. Fulmer Middle School, and Airport High School. All three of these schools do an excellent job of educating the children of Springdale. Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School is located in Springdale and is the state’s oldest alternative education provider at nearly 100 years old. Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School’s curriculum is purposefully designed to prepare each student for a General Education Development (GED) diploma. The school offers academic and vocational studies along with a JROTC program.
