Sequiota Park has been a favorite outdoor destination since before it became a State Fish Hatchery in 1920. The park was miles from Springfield, but train service on the Chadwick Branch of the Frisco Railway made it a popular day-trip, perfect for an afternoon of picnicking and exploring. The park is recognizable in historic and modern photos by the iconic Sequiota Cave, navigable only by boat. Sequiota Park was acquired by the Park Board in 1959. Today, Sequiota Cave is home to a migrating colony of gray bats, an endangered species, and the caves are closed to the public except during scheduled tours. The park serves as a trailhead for the popular Galloway Creek Greenway Trail. Sequiota, according to legend, means “many springs.”
