Always love Park Central Square! Every visit is a new experience. Love that Springfield has the number of specialty shops, restaurants and little “dives”. Truly a fun time!

It has come a long way since last time we were here. A bunch of great restaurants and bars in and off the square. Great place to spend a extended evening.
