One of the jewels of the city of Springfield is its 735-acre Forest Park, left as a gift to the city from Everett Barney in the 1800s. Surrounding this multi-functional treasure is a neighborhood that helped give Springfield its moniker, “City of Homes.” Many were built at the turn of the last century, and exquisite detail work can be found throughout the Victorian-style homes, offering spacious rooms and fine craftsmanship. Within the designated neighborhood of Forest Park is the Forest Park Historic District, which provides a certain set of standards to homeowners to help keep these old beautiful homes in their original glory. Additionally, multi-family homes and apartments can be found in this diverse neighborhood. Check out the popular Italian, Vietnamese, and Spanish restaurants near the X, which is at the heart of Forest Park.
