Fassnight Park was acquired by the Park Board in 1924. Springfield’s first public swimming pool and a two-story fieldstone bathhouse and pavilion in were added in 1927. The WPA added stone bridges across Fassnight Creek in the 1930s. The Park Board considered replacing the pool and bathhouse with modern architecture in 1978, but public sentiment changed their plans and the facility was saved. Fassnight Park has long been home to high-level Springfield area fastpitch softball games. Neighboring Parkview High School has a hilltop view of the park. Fassnight Park also includes a playground, basketball court and handball court. Fassnight Creek Greenway runs along the creek, connecting the park to Jefferson Avenue on the east and Springfield Skate Park on the west.
