It is a fun filled day for the whole family!
Springview is an NCIP (Nebraska Community Improvement Program) Community.
A group known as the NCIP Clean Up Committee is committed to cleaning up
and beautifying the town. This committee started the annual “clean up days”.
This is a three day weekend in April or May when large dumpsters are made available
to residents to dispose of those unwanted items that accumulate through the year free of charge.
There is also a “Trash to Treasures” event where you can dispose of any useable items and someone
else can pick it up for free. This event has become very popular and proves to be a lot of fun
for all ages.
The NCIP Committee also supplies pots of live flowers for Main Street and other locations each summer.
The American Legion was instrumental in erecting a beautiful monument to soldiers who
served in the World War II, Korean, Vietnam, Lebanon/Granada/Panama/Gulf eras.
This monument was completed and dedicated in 2003.
A monument was already in place to honor veterans of the Civil War, the Spanish War
and World War I. Both monuments sit on the courthouse lawn in Springview.
Springview Golf Club
The Springview Golf Club, with its unique sand greens, is a public 9-hole course with clubhouse,
lounge, and storehouse available. Golfers can enjoy weekly summer leagues with cookouts as well as
six summer tournaments.
Springview Recreation Area
The Springview Rec Area is a hub of activity throughout the summer months.
The park features two picnic shelters, playground, baseball diamond and basketball and
tennis courts. Recently a modern restroom with showers and camper pads were added.
The rec area is bordered by the local golf course that offers unique sand greens.
A newly developed area of the park includes a roping arena where the local roping club holds
roping and barrel racing events and a pulling track for pickup and tractor pulls.
Plans are being made to expand this area to possibly include an ATV track, a mud pit and
an obstacle course.
