Sulphur Springs

Total Population: 15,995

Sulphur Springs’ growth is evident with the construction of new residential properties and communities, major expansion of existing manufacturing plants and construction of new manufacturing facilities.

The city’s parks offer baseball, softball, soccer fields, tennis courts, and miles of walking trails. We also have Kids Kingdom, the Boardwalk at Pinion Pond, and a lighted skate park. Nearby is the Southwest Dairy Museum and Hopkins County Regional Civic Center. The Sulphur Springs Country Club has just finished a major remodel and offers a beautiful course and a gracious new Club Center with several diing options.

Sulphur Springs is a seasoned yet progressive community-a blend of new and old traditions, customs and businesses-maintains its small town values and atmosphere while boldly stepping into the future with the Downtown Plaza, the renovated downtown Business District and the Veterans Memorial. The new Sulphur Springs Middle School, a new multi-purpose facility at the High School campus, state of the art Hopkins County Memorial Hospital, spectacular parks, award winning Sulphur Springs Airport and vibrant growth make Sulphur Springs the Bright Star of North East Texas.
