Named after D.W. Spangler (1869-1959), who settled in the St. Vrain Valley in 1889, Spangler Park straddles Spring Gulch. D.W. Spangler moved west from Kansas when he contracted tuberculosis while studying at Morrill Normal College. He worked in the Webster Nursery and later taught school in Longmont. An influential and highly respected educator, Spangler taught at the high school for 43 years. In addition, he operated his own nursery, raised bees, and became involved in church and civic affairs. His son, Keith Spangler, was the City Clerk for many years. Spangler Elementary School is located northwest of the park.
