Ironwood Outdoor Center has a bit of an infestation problem?in the form of flying squirrels. The thing about these flying squirrels, though, is that they're actually people. After donning a helmet and harness, brave adventurers are hoisted high into the sky before being "dropped" to sail through the air. But the Flying Squirrel is just one of the exhilarating activities at this nonprofit organization, whose aim is to instill self-confidence and nurture a love for nature in kids and adults alike.
Adrenaline junkies can get their fill with the zipline, ropes course, and a vertical play-pen, while those looking for a more subtle day of nature can hike Ironwood's verdant trails, explore the sensory garden, or paddle down the creek in a kayak or a giant wooden shoe. Open from early spring to late fall, the center welcomes single-day visitors or groups celebrating a birthday, family reunion, or graduation.

After several years of teaching out of rec centers, school cafeterias, and even fire houses, Westampton Martial Arts now has a permanent training facility. The school is owned by the Kirkpatrick family, and their deep roots in the area have inspired them to offer classes for just about every segment of their community, from wee ones to teens to grandparents who want to impress their teens. Among other techniques, students learn how to stay fit and defend themselves through Brazilian jujitsu, hapkido, karate, tae kwon do, and muay-thai kickboxing.
Springfield Golf Center's 18-hole course encompasses 6 par threes, 10 par fours, and 2 par fives.

The normal rules of gravity only apply to half of Stratosphere Trampoline Park's 20,000 sq. ft. interior. Trampolines blanket the other half, inviting visitors to leap and bound during free play or in high-flying games of dodgeball like the ones mankind aspires to play on the moon. When they're done jumping, visitors can dive into a foam pit, and youngsters can head to a special kids' area equipped with padded and netted trampolines. Nearby, speed wall, lazer maze, arcade games, and an air hockey table stand atop normal, non-springy surfaces.
