A 60-acre natural resource area just north of Springfield along the South Dry Sac River, with unique natural features including caves, bluffs and arches, as well as forest and prairie.
The name “Lost Hill” refers to a raised area that once overlooked the South Dry Sac River — until the river changed course, leaving a hill surrounded by floodplain.
The park, built on the former Owen family farm, includes picnic tables, a small playground, parking lot and plenty of room to explore. The park is also a trailhead for the Fulbright Spring Greenway.
Lost Hill Park was acquired in 2004 and opened in 2010, funded by the 2001 voter-approved 1/4-cent countywide parks sales tax.
Open sunrise to sunset.
