Gurdon Bill Park in Springfield to get new trees, plants

Hampden County

Volunteers in Springfield will plant new trees and pollinator gardens at the Gurdon Bill Park on Tuesday afternoon. 

“My greatest source of pride about a year later, you go and see something like this,” Riley Prattson of Regreen Springfield told 22News. “You come back and see all the trees have grown and all the work is still sustained so different.”

According to President of ReGreen Springfield David Bloniarz, the planting at 427 Liberty Street in the Lower Liberty Neighborhood will happen at 12:30 p.m to 4 p.m. and consist of planting over 30 new shade trees and 400 perennial plants.

Bloniarz said the planting will make the park more attractive, sustainable, and ecologically viable. 

He said the planting is possible due to a donation from Berkshire Bank Foundation to ReGreen Springfield and will have 40 bank volunteers assisting with the planting.
