WHO IS PVRC?
Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club is a 501(c)3 nonprofit which operates a recreational facility in the North End of Springfield with the mission to promote river-based sporting activities, to develop river access, and encourage recreation in the Greater Springfield metropolitan area. PVRC will serve as point of access to the river for human-powered craft, located within easy walking and bike-riding distance of downtown Springfield.
The creation of North Riverfront Park and relocation of PVRC marks the latest in a series of policies to revitalize the riverfront and capitalize on its value for recreation. By providing a safe and welcoming experience through our professional programs and high quality events, PVRC seeks to transform Springfield’s waterfront into a destination location.
PVRC was established as a 501c3 in 2009 with the mission to promote river-based sporting activities, to develop river access, and encourage recreation in the Greater Springfield metropolitan area.
In 2011, the City of Springfield reclaimed the only remaining boathouse in the city and its surrounding riverfront property for the sole purpose of creating a public access boating and outdoor recreational facility. Rights to operate this facility were awarded to the Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club (PVRC).
