Parks and Recreation

Gaunt Park, located on West South College Street, is the Village's largest park and is home to the public swimming pool. The two softball diamonds at Gaunt Park are used by men's and women's leagues and Perry League, the local tee-ball program. The Yellow Springs Youth Baseball Program also plays at Gaunt Park every summer.

Six miles of railroad right-of-way, acquired by the Village, are now part of the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail. The local bike path, popular with bicyclists, skaters and walkers, links Yellow Springs with Springfield to the north and Loveland to the south. The Yellow Springs Train Station is located next to the bike path and provides trail support, including public restrooms. The facility also houses the Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce.

The Village also owns Ellis Park, on Polecat Road, just north of the Village limits, which has a pond and a picnic area. Several small neighborhood park areas are located throughout town.
