Geographically, the Springfield area is the largest neighborhood designation in town. Many of the town's community and senior centers, schools, businesses and industries are located in this neighborhood. Miles of the Willamette river, parklands, meadows and hills are contained in this area. This region defines much of central Springfield, and most of south Springfield. The construction is just as diverse as the geography.
