Improvements unveiled at North Riverfront Park

Park is located on former Bassett Boat property on West Street

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A newly-renovated park in Springfield is offering new opportunities for recreation along the Connecticut River. City officials and members of the Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club unveiled new improvements to North Riverfront Park Tuesday morning, including a gazebo, picnic tables, and new landscaping.

The park is located on land that used to belong to the Bassett Boat Company. The Riverfront Club, which is bringing crew rowing back to the Springfield area, has been operating out of Bassett’s former building.

The park is located off West Street in Springfield, at the start of the North End Bridge. In addition to the river, it also lies along the Connecticut Riverwalk and Bikeway.
