Stanley park

Reviewed By PekepooEmma

My mother, Norma Hopper, who just recently “passed over” used to playing “the bells” in the carillon tower for years & years! She also played at all weddings during that time period! Before that I visited Stanley Park, as a young child w/ my “NANA”, Winifred Roberts! It was a good fifty plus years ago when there was just a “weeded path” around the lake, in those days! My grandmother adored it, my mother did and so do I! How far The is beautiful park has come, from those “early days” is amazing! They offer so many fee services, activities and fun things for the community, that it is amazing! I bring our grandsons here for free concerts onnearly Friday mornings in the summer! Thee many concerts( DONNA LEE, TOUCH OF ELVIS, DIAMOND COLLECTION & on & on in summer) are truly fantastic & all free! The park itself is breathtakingly( no charge either to enter park or use any of their beautiful picnic tables, grills and fantastic playground for children( you can rent enclosed patios for children’s parties or celebrations! The park itself w/ rose gardens, Japanese gardens, beautiful wooden pathway around pond(s) is absolutely beautiful! The trees, the fountains, the beauty stays with you long after you leave this beautiful park! My heart cries for my mother but somehow, walking this beautiful park, I know she lives on, I feel close to her here!

Westfield River Brewing Company

Reviewed By joanninct - Manchester, Connecticut

Stopped here while on a brewery tour of western Mass. They had a good beer selection which was very enjoyable.

We had lunch before arriving so we didn't try any of the food. It smelled amazing. We will definitely be back for lunch and more beer.

Springfield Armory National Historic Site

This Armory, which manufactured and tested firearms for the U.S. military from 1794 to 1968, houses the country's largest collection of small weapons. While the first floor is free, there's a fee for the second floor, which displays rare weapons and the largest collection of Confederate weapons anywhere.

Reviewed By Chipperhigh2 - Okemos, Michigan

Have not been to Springfield Armory Museum in over 30 years. The National Park Service has done a very nice job with the displays. Many of the machine guns on displays were stored for years in the basement. I hope they continue to improve. A valuable tribute to our fighting men and the men who designed weapons for them. Worth stopping to enjoy. Good for the entire family. The museum is free, but a small donation is welcomed.

The Ranch Golf Club

Reviewed By Ralph D - Delray Beach, Florida

Great semi-private course. played there by chance twice during an unexpected extended stay in Springfield. About 25 minutes from downtown, but worth the ride. The greens fees are not muni fees but neither is the course. Don't let the front none lull you into complacency. The back nine are a lot of blind shots that require hitting the fairway. The greens could have been a little better manicured. Played in the mid afternoon and spike marks abound!
The GPS on the carts was a blessing.

Robinson State Park

Day-use park offers consists of 811 acres of frontage on the Westfield River, offering a variety of outdoor recreation including bicycling paths, walking trails, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing and cross-country skiing.

Reviewed By Sunshinedreamin

Robinson isn't great if you want a park to entertain your kids. But if you want to take your dog for a walk there's a paved road to travel with hills and river scenery. Or you could follow the trails into the woods for hiking and biking.

Reviewed By 250crystalp - New York

Out of state visitors pay an inclusive fee to see all 5 museums...for us it was 86 dollars which included the 30 minute planetarium experience ( two adults and two teens). It was well worth it! Friendly staff, beautiful buildings,cool exhibits! Tons of interactive things that younger kids would enjoy. Learned tons about Springfield itself. A must visit!

Amelia Park Children's Museum

Reviewed By 83JessicaM83 - Westfield, Massachusetts

I've lived in Westfield over 5 years, and had no idea this existed until recently. Took my 1yr old son here, and he loved it!! Plenty of room to run around, and lots of stuff for him to touch and look at. We go during the week at off hours, and it's never been crowded. Not sure how it is on the weekends.

Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden

Bring the kids to this outdoor sculpture garden where the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, and other beloved Dr. Seuss characters are immortalized in bronze, life-size statues all designed by Geisel's step-daughter, sculptor Lark Grey Dimond-Cates.

Reviewed By Richard_Harpum - Doncaster, United Kingdom

My wife and I visited the Dr Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield, Massachusetts, during a tour of New England. We decided to go, as it was recommended in our guide book.
There is a small parking lot opposite the museum and the sculpture display consists of a series of bronze sculptures that were made by Dr Seuss’s step-daughter. Some, like the elephant are quite large.
Next to the garden is the Dr Seuss Museum (“The Amazing World of Dr Seuss”). We did not have time to visit that but for Dr Seuss buffs, it is probably essential viewing.
A fun place to visit if you are visiting Springfield.
