The Historic Spring, located inside of the Comanche Trail Park, is a new source of pride as the namesake for Big Spring residents. The $1.8 million renovation process was funded through the hotel-motel tax, and residents say it’s worth every penny.
The site is fully handicap accessible, linked to the park and community center, plaza seating for more than 1,000 people with full electrical hookups and performance stage, and has observation decks overlooking the spring and artificial outflows. All of which make the Historic Spring site a lovely setting for an outdoor event.
During a Big Spring City Council meeting that was held earlier this month, council members approved the rental fees and reservation costs for using the site. According to the agenda from the December 12th, 2017 meeting, applications to use the site must be filed with the Community Services Department. Rental fee is $200 per day and a one-time per use, refundable deposit of $500 which must be paid 14 days prior to the first scheduled use of the Performance Stage and Plaza.
