Doling Park History Quiz
301 E. Talmage St., Springfield, MO 65803

It’s Throwback Thursday! Today’s Parks Pick-Me-Up features Doling Park, one of 10 Historic Parks dating to pre-WWII in Springfield. Doling Park has a very colorful history! It was once the Giboney family homestead, a private park developed by James Marshall Doling, an amusement park with rides and games — all before the Park Board acquired the property in 1929. Check out Doling history and photos at the Springfield-Greene County Library and Doling History Museum. Think you know all about Doling? Take the quiz to see how you do!

Today is a beautiful day to visit Doling Park at 301 E Talmage. Please be smart while visiting any park or trail: stay six feet away from others, avoid gathering in groups, cover your coughs and sneezes, and stay home if you’re showing symptoms of illness.
