Willamalane celebrates 75 years of serving the community


October 3, 2019


Former gymnast Hailey Spangler, 17, strolled just down the street to attend and show off her skills while waiting in line for one of the many kids' activities at last weekend's Willamalane 75th Anniversary. See page 16 for more photos from the event.

The storm clouds parted and the sun was shining Sunday as Willamalane Park & Recreation District celebrated its 75th anniversary with a sprawling community hoopla at Willamalane Park in Springfield.

The free event drew a large crowd throughout the day, enjoying live music, carnival rides, face painting, axe-throwing and more. Foodtrucks, a beer garden, and VFW Broiler Fest-style chicken were available for attendees to enjoy as well as a mobile video game experience.

After patiently awaiting his turn, WIllamalane's own mascot squirrel slips down the Super Slide.
