I visited this park for the first time yesterday 9/28/14. I was struck by the potential for this space as its so wonderfully located and designed. Unfortunately the park was full of trash, and the stone memorial to Casimir Pulaski was horribly overgrown and untended. I didn't notice if the benches were fixed but I will go back and take pics of these issues and post them now that I have found this site. How disappointing it was to see this as I am a proud Polish American and a resident of Holyoke and appreciate it's numerous historic, well kept urban public spaces.
