A Pioneering History

In the early pioneering days, this was mainly a stopover town for people headed westward to find their fortunes. It was so nice, however, with the cool, clean spring waters and the beauty of the rolling hills in the backdrop that some decided to stay. In 1880, after a permanent settlement had been established at the Old Mill Park, they finally were incorporated into Jackson County as an official city. Ever since then it has slowly grown to become the town it is today, but still retains its charm and quaintness to this very day.

Fleming Park

Since the natural scenery nearby is so beautiful, it makes sense that the parks and green spaces here are some of the main attractions. The most popular of which is probably Fleming Park. It is home to Blue Spring Lake and Lake Jacomo. Spreading almost 8,000 acres, there are 22 city parks nestled in this beltway of beauty and all are open to the public for recreation of all types. There are golf courses, skate parks, picnic areas, and dog parks. Anything you could possibly need for outdoor recreation is right in your own backyard in Blue Springs.
