Project Spotlight: Fassnight Creek Greenway & Springfield Art Museum Will Connect
Wonderful news for our community! The Springfield Art Museum’s master plan focuses on the creation of a new Family Learning Center, new educational spaces, expansion and improvement to the facility including public and community spaces, improved circulation throughout the building, parking improvements, and a renewed purpose for the Museum’s grounds and greenspace. The Museum’s grounds will undergo a dramatic transformation including greater pedestrian and bicycle access through trails, expanded and improved greenspace, and needed storm water improvements including the naturalization of portions of Fassnight Creek. The Museum will serve as an incredible destination and trailhead for Fassnight Creek Greenway!
This master plan perfectly aligns with our community’s Vision 20/20 Comprehensive Plan for Fassnight Creek Greenway, which will ultimately connect the Springfield Art Museum on the east, then travel through Phelps Grove Park and Fassnight Park and Pool, past Springfield Skate Park, and through Ewing Park, where it will one day connect to Wilson’s Creek and Jordan Creek greenways.
