Today’s Parks Pick-Me-Up features historic Timmons Hall in Silver Springs Park. Facility coordinator Christine Peoples tells us about how the 1930s-era building was saved from demolition and relocated to the park in 2015, with the move and renovations funded entirely by private donations through @Friends of Timmons Temple. The final step in renovation, refinishing the original floors, took place in March, and they are gorgeous! Today the building serves as an event venue, hosting historical, cultural and educational opportunities for our community. Check back with Timmons Hall this summer and plan your visit!

For now, though, stay smart while visiting Silver Springs, or 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.
