Frederick Law Olmsted, of Central Park fame, designed this historic park in the woods of Springfield Massachusetts, overlooking the Connecticut River. It is well-maintained and truly lovely to see families of all backgrounds walking onto the grounds for an afternoon of fun and cooler havens. Forest Park has it all: tennis courts (including several clay), splash sprinklers, in-ground pool, ice rink, grandstand baseball field, volleyball courts, shuffle board, bocci greens, several playgrounds, a zoo, duck ponds, creek, bike trails, hiking, historic houses, numerous picnic grounds, large green muti-use fields, snack bar, gazebos, picturesque wedding sites, a three-season farmers's market and the sweetest pine trees you would ever want to sit under! What a spot!
