The City of Bay Springs Mississippi is "Some Place Special" with Gazebos, water fountains and floral gardens located throughout the city. Originally settled in the late 1800s for the timber, it was officially registered as the City of Bay Springs in 1904 due to Rail Road construction. The name derives from the beauty of the Bay Trees that flourished in the city and for the natural Artesian Springs flowing from the trunks of the trees. Today, the city gazebo stands where the Bay Trees were, with the same historical Artesian Springs flowing from a fountain. Surrounding the gazebo are several botanical rose gardens. The City of Bay Springs is known for its gardens and beauty, and also hosts several annual events which attract both locals and visitors alike. Bay Fest is an annual event, usually the last weekend in May, which lasts for three days with entertainment, carnival rides, arts and crafts, and food vendors. More recently, the Hammerhead 500 draws a large crowd of spectators who gather to watch participants of all ages race from atop the old brick street downtown in handmade or sponsored derby cars. Sponsored by the Bay Springs Chamber of Commerce and supported by local businesses, the Hammerhead 500 has grown to be a highly anticipated occasion with spectacular prizes and a fun atmosphere. There is also the annual Fourth of July Glow 5k Fun run hosted by the Bay Springs Medical Clinic to benefit the Seth Harris Childhood Cancer Foundation. Other attractions to Bay Springs are the many worship venues and restaurants with food ranging from good old fashioned southern cooking to Mexican. The City is proud of the three major parks located in Bay Springs - Smith Park, NECO Park and City Hall Park. Many events are held at Smith Park which displays a lovely water fountain surrounded by flowers and also has a stage for outdoor concerts. NECO Park has a splash pad, walking track and play ground for all to enjoy. The City Hall Park is one of the oldest parks canopied by large Pine and Oak trees. Here, you will enjoy a play ground, walking area, gazebo, and newly planted butterfly gardens. The Bay Springs Monarch Fiesta Project has three of the four butterfly gardens located at The City Hall Park.
