The city’s active church life shows through the variety of churches to choose from. Action church, Church Alive, and Life Community Church are a few of these religious sanctuaries, as the city refers to them. Catholicism is the dominant religion, but all are welcome in the cheery, supportive community. Along with a rich church life, parks are also in abundance. Chuck Pula, parks and recreation director of Winter Springs, received a Grand Award for the city’s 103-acre Central Winds Park in the Baltimore-based Professional Ground Management Society’s Green Star Awards competition. The park also received the Lawrence, Kan-based Sports Turf Management Association’s Award as the best Parks and Recreation Sports Complex in the nation in 2004.
Winter Springs is not only known for the rich landscaping and religious atmosphere, but also the city’s strong economy. In the 2009 recession, the city managed to survive through community efforts and a positive attitude. Reporter, Kevin Smith, wrote an article on how the small community pulled together in the moment of truth.
The community continues to grow and thrives through harsh times. A positive attitude leads to a happiness and success, which is exactly what Winter Springs has achieved.
