HISTORY: The original park was completed in 1977. The original design featured a concrete courtyard, abstract sculpture, fountain, elevator and stairs aimed at providing a gateway between the Springfield Museums and downtown Springfield, MA. More recently in summer 2020, Pynchon Plaza was redesigned as an accessible civic space. Pynchon Plaza formally reopened on November 19, 2020.
