Educational Projects Sustainable Loop System: Reconnecting Springfield to Waterfront MGM Springfield to I-91 to Connecticut River Springfield, Massachusetts

A group project led me to chose this area as my focus site. The Sea Serpent concept provides multiple open and private gathering spaces in a variety of sizes. The center of the site offers a large lawn area for recreation and relaxation with biomorphic walking path throughout the whole riverfront park.

While the riverfront park provides recreational and gathering spaces, it also is a space that people from both the metro and residential areas can easily access on foot to enjoy the unique views of the Connecticut River.
