A group of local residents has picked a new name and set a goal to bring new life to Rock Spring Park in Alton. Rock Spring 2020 meets and works monthly on a wish list to clean up and fix up the park and hopefully make it more attractive for local residents.
Group spokesman Greg Gelzinnis says sprucing up the park has been on the radar of the Drug Free Alton Coalition over the past 3 to 4 years, and now with some organization, they hope to move forward guided by the community:

The group holds meetings on the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm at the Main Street United Methodist Church, and holds a work day at the park on the second Saturday of each month from 8am to Noon. For more information on the group, look for Rock Spring 2020 on Facebook.
