BRIMFIELD - The state Department of Conservation and Recreation reopened Robinson State Park in Agawam Sunday, after an initial cleanup of roads, trails and the day use area from the June 1 tornado.

We're excited to have Robinson State Park reopen for the public," said DCR Commissioner Ed Lambert.
