Springfield in Hampden county, Massachusetts

Springfield, MA

Whether for its plentiful green space, abundant academic opportunities, or urban convenience, Springfield has much to offer visitors and residents alike.

Springfield contains more than 33 square miles, with an impressive 12% of that space developed as urban parkland. Springfield has thus earned the nickname “The City in a Forest”. In addition to its nature-developed urban space, Springfield is surrounded by rolling hills, mountains, and the Connecticut River. Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead was retained to develop the city's natural beauty even further. Under his guidance, Forest Park and zoo was brought to birth. This 735-acre park is bordered by the city's garden district and Forest Park Heights – a neighborhood featuring more than 600 Victorian Painted Lady mansions.

Other attractions in Springfield include museums that include a wide variety of exhibits such as a Dr. Suess sculptural garden, a dinosaur display, a Milton Bradley play area, and areas on history and art. Springfield is the birthplace of basketball, and so understandably contains the basketball hall of fame.

For those seeking to rest their weary sightseeing bones at local eateries, Springfield provides an abundance of restaurants.

Springfield has a rich history dating all the back to its founding in 1636. Its utility was proved quickly as George Washington set up an armory there in 1777. This armory produced the first American musket in 1794.

Springfield has an abundance of academic opportunities. The Hartford-Springfield area has been nicknamed “the knowledge corridor” due to its 32 universities and liberal arts colleges. Western New England University, Springfield University, The American International and UMass Amherst are located within Springfield.
