SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Parents and educators cheered today as the city of Springfield opened its newly renovated environmental center at Forest Park.
What’s old became new again as a four million dollar city investment transformed the old Porter Lake boathouse into a modern eco-facility for school children to study the environment.
Ecology Teacher Katie Orellana welcomes the improvements. “Now we’re able to come in from the weather and update the environmentally friendly aspect of the building.”
The renovated environmental center is located at the foot of Porter Lake at Forest Park.
