Welcome to Spring City — The Town of Spring City is rich in natural resources, scenic wonders, and southern hospitality. Located in Rhea County, in Eastern Tennessee, Spring City is home to Watts Bar Lake with over 780 miles of shoreline. As part of the Cumberland Plateau, Spring City also enjoys rolling hills for your hiking pleasure. Come see what we have to offer.
The Town of Spring City making a run for the Dog Park Dash
The Spring City Board of Commissioners has been planning to build a dog park inside the Spring City Nature Park for a few years now and, since then, citizens have donated $1,018.55 towards this project via a designated checking account at Community National Bank in Spring City. The city now has an opportunity to obtain additional monies through a grant by the Boyd Foundation to make the dog park a reality. This three year grant program will be awarding 36 communities, across the state each year, with a $25,000 grant and one community will be awarded the grand prize of $100,000.
The Boyd Foundation wants to make Tennessee the most pet-friendly state in America. To do this, the foundation is committed to building or enhancing more than 100 dog parks across the state through the Tennessee Dog Park Dash. Established in 2018, this three-year program will award a $1 million annual donation for parks in communities across the state.
We have heard a lot of feedback from our local dog owners and feel that a dog park will be a great asset for the community as well as continue to help Spring City become a great place for dog owners to live. If you have ideas and/or would like to get involved in the Spring City Dog Park Project please contact City Hall at (423) 365-6441 or stop by the Spring City Municipal Building at 229 Front Street.

Featured Volunteer Organization of the Month – Spring City LEO Club
The Spring City LEO Club is a community based civic organization and was organized by the Spring City Lions Club. The club provides young people, age 12-18, an opportunity for development and contribution, both individually and collectively, as responsible members of their local communities. Leo clubs also provide their members with the camaraderie and growth that come from participation in community service projects, social functions and leadership development, as well as helping to provide scholarship opportunities. Youth who join Leo clubs have fun, make new friends and experience the rewards of serving others.
Leo Club Motto
- Leadership: Leo members acquire skills as project organizers and motivators of their peers.
- Experience: They discover how teamwork and cooperation can bring about change in their community and the world.
- Opportunity: Leos develop positive traits and receive recognition for their contributions.
The Leo Club Program has an international network of over 6,500 clubs in over 140 countries. Community service remains the cornerstone of the program, fostering a lifetime commitment to helping others. Like their Lion counterparts, Leo club members enjoy serving their neighbors and watching positive results unfold.
The Spring City LEO Club recently volunteered at the Chattanooga Community Kitchen. They also have an annual Mother/Son Dance fundraiser to help fund various community projects throughout the year as well as help with Spring City Lions Club projects. The Spring City LEO Club meets every 3rd Saturday of the month at 10:00 AM at the Spring City Municipal Building and is currently having a membership drive.
