We is by far the best city in Ohio to live in.

Springfield have gone from strictly depending on manufacturing for employment to a mixture of employers. Springfield has several industrial parks and Springfield Beckley Municipal Airport.

Springfield, Ohio has an abundance of group and organizations with events and programs. We are home to the John Legend Theater with year-round plays and programs.

We are home To Wittenberg University and Clark State Community College with wonderful Public and Private Schools.

Great amenities like a brewery with farmers market during winter months, ice arena, baseball, parks and recreation, fantastic Summer Arts Programs in Veterans Park.

Springfield Ohio is a dying city. Nothing really to do in downtown Springfield Ohio. We got a city mayor who is all talk no action plus a lot of business places are closing down. As for downtown Springfield Ohio, Hollywood can pretty much turn downtown Springfield into a Hollywood movie stage or into a Hollywood studio backlot. The only thing that's Good about Springfield Ohio is the video game store game cycle.Their employees are really nice. And yes the blue jackets chiller. The only thing that's Good about downtown Springfield is memorial day parade and Christmas lights in the city. Most of all Springfield Ohio is quite a dangerous place to live in.

I wish i could say Good things about Springfield Ohio but ever year it gets more ridiculou. Angd the sad part about it is if Springfield keeps going on the rough path the very worst that's going to happen is the fact Springfield Ohio might end up turning into a ghost town at some point in the future

Growing up in Springfield, I can honestly say I have witnessed the decline over the last 40 years first hand. We are to a point now that the crime is absolutely out of control. Nowhere within the entire city is it even remotely safe. There are absolutely no parts of town where one does not risk being assaulted, raped, robbed, or attacked. When I was younger, there were at least safer areas which everyone knew about and we could plan our day within those spots to avoid becoming a victim. Those lines have long since blurred. For instance, some of the fishing spots in some of the parks used to be mildly safe to enjoy. Now, it is practically suicide to fish without a weapon because the scumbag criminals are bleeding over into the forests and natural areas. Fact: if you live in Springfield for any length of time, you WILL be the victim of at least one crime! And, like mentioned, it does not matter what part of town you live in. Stay away, or if you are already here, try to find a way to escape. It is doubtful that it will get any better. Springfield is DEAD! As for me, I'm out. Leaving next year. And I can't wait!

There is absolutely nothing good about this joke-of-a-city at all!!!

Springfield is a great city, there is no crime and is just the right place to bring your kids and family, to have a great vacation. There are options other than vacationing in Springfield, if anything you should move here, it's safe, the community is together and everyone knows and loves each other. There is not one thing wrong with Springfield.

A good thing that stood out was the schooling system, here we have the best education known to man.
