Robinson State Park serves as a major day use area for its region. Donated to the state in 1934, the facility includes over 800 acres with five miles of frontage on the Westfield River.
In addition to several good vantage points on the Westfield River near the bend at White Brook, the park offers tables and fireplaces at the Trestle and Provin Mountain picnic areas. The 17 acre island west of the falls at Mittineague is one of the park's most picturesque spots. The rough terrain of the park is unexpected in the fertile Connecticut River Valley. A small demonstration logging area, located on the site, adds to the diversity and importance of this urban park.
