Energy Park is located on the former Boston and Maine Railroad yard, the site was the home of the Greenfield Train Station that was demolished in the early 1960’s. The development of the property was spearheaded by an agreement with the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) and the Town of Greenfield in 1994.
The Energy Park is an innovative solution to an urban industrial site that harnesses town history and contemporary environmental issues into a multi-functional park property. The park is comprised of demonstrative sustainable energy exhibits, interpretive signage, herb and native plants garden, and a bandstand used for music concerts. It hosts approximately 30 to 40 events a year ranging from festivals, concerts, play groups, and picnic lunches. During the summer months the park’s bandstand is booked on Sundays and Thursdays for concerts. Many trees and shrubs are labeled with descriptive placards throughout the park.
