Florence - Frank Newhall Look Memorial Park

300 North Main Street

Look Park, consisting of over one hundred & fifty acres, is a gift to the City of Northampton from Mrs. Fannie Burr Look. She provided the land, funds for its development and a trust fund for its upkeep. Additionally, operation and maintenance funds are dependent upon visitor fees, grants, and gifts. No funds are received from tax sources. The Park is a city-owned park and is administered as a non-profit organization by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees. The Mayor of Northampton is a member ex-officio.

This living memorial to Frank Newhall Look was first opened to the public in 1930. Mr. Look was the chief executive of the Prophylactic Brush Company, Florence, from 1877 to 1911.

I love this place. It has everything. Parking was nine dollars but it's free to get in if you go without a car. You do have to pay for certain activity but well worth it... The petting zoo was free.. a very family friendly place.. I will continually visit.

There is nothing bad I can say about this place. Its amazing for the whole family. They have a Facebook page that always adds amazing events and the parking fee is so reasonable. Season pass is well worth it. It's amazing for the whole family

A bit over priced. They have a small nice zoo, and a train that kids love. But the park gets dirty, and sometimes the staff isn't quick to clean it up. Other than that it can be a lot of fun for the whole family. They do events a lot of the time. They also have baseball fields, Playgrounds, walking areas, and paddle boats. Lots to do to keep the family entertained.

Fun place. There is mini paddle boats $8 for 30min., a life guard is on canoe on watch just in case and they also provide life jackets if you desire, about 4 people can enter in it but only 2 paddle the boat which moves about 5mph, the pond is pretty big and I saw a big turtle there. There is a mini golf course $6 for 18 holes, different sizes of golf clubs, nice garden area. There is a train ride about 3 per person, it moves about 5mph around a small piece of the park which takes about 8min. to go around. There's a small zoo which is free, and you can spot deer, goat, hawk, vulture, pheasant, owl, turkey, peacock, chicken and rabbit, and you could feed geese, deer and goat corn from a machine (0.50ยข required). Every Wednesday the boat ride, train ride and mini golf are half price. There is also several tennis courts, basketball courts, river to swim in, children playgrounds, children area to get wet, volleyball nets, etc. Good place for sports, walks, bike, picnicking, swimming, and stuff. Mini food restaurant, public restrooms. Public grills. Able to reserve a spot (good for holidays) or you could just show up at the park as well. The fee to enter was $7.

Nice park. Has train,playground ,snack bar, zoo, playing field,picnic tables. Owned by private non profit so it's a bit pricey compared to a publicly owned park. $9 per car entry fee.
