Private Park Is Donated To City By Chemical Company
A new city park will be opened and dedicated on Monday in Springfield, Massachusetts
The 18 acre park is open green space that was used by over 50 years by employees of a chemical plant. The plant’s current owner, Eastman Chemical, donated it to the city. At an earlier event marking playground improvements, Springfield Parks and Recreation Director Patrick Sullivan said the quality of life is enhanced by parks.
The new park comes with an existing basketball court, baseball diamond, pavilion and restrooms.
