Dr. Seuss Memorial Garden, a Short Visit by Barbara Dexter

The Dr. Seuss Memorial Garden is located in Springfield, MA in the courtyard behind the Springfield library. If you did not know it was there it would be easy enough to miss since it is not seen from the street. For all of you that remember reading Dr. Seuss books as a child, this is a must see. The ¬†garden, although not massive has bronze statues that seem bring back the joyful times of reading “Green Eggs and Ham” or “Sam I am.”

I would wait until the snow melts before visiting the Dr. Seuss Memorial Garden. It will give you something to look forward to doing. The garden is also free. Access is through the library or I believe you may be able to walk around the building.
