Use Nature As Your Guide Program 2019

2019 marks the 12th year of the Use Nature As Your Guide program at the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).  This program offers a MassParks Pass to the West Springfield Park & Recreation Department each year that residents may borrow to visit state parks.  The ParksPass entitles the bearer to free parking for one vehicle (excluding buses or vans) at over 50 facilities in the Massachusetts state parks system that charge a day-use parking fee

MassPark Pass Lending Through West Springfield Park & Recreation

This ParksPass should be borrowed and returned to the West Springfield Park & Recreation Department.  West Springfield Park & Recreation requires a copy of your license to be kept for our records when lending the ParksPass. We encourage you to visit the Department of Conservation & Recreation website for more information about MassParks facilities:
