This is a great park, with something for everyone, located off Chaffee Road and Interstate 10. The emphasis in the playground area is workers in the community, such as firemen, policemen and naval personnel.

Mayor Ed Austin and Councilman Mike Hogan, District 12, broke ground for the new park on August 29, 1994. It was dedicated with a ribbon cutting on March 24, 1995. The Community Center was opened on Nov. 23, 1999 as the Crystal Springs Community Center. It was renamed the Julian W. Barrs Center on Oct. 16, 2002. Barrs was Director of the Parks Department for 8 years. In addition to the community center, Crystal Springs Road Park offers playscapes, grills, picnic shelters, restrooms, an adult baseball field, 4 lighted tennis courts, 3 handball courts and nature trails. Extensive refurbishment of the park was completed on November 5, 2005. 165 additional trees, new decorative fencing, and a new state-of-the-art playground were installed.
