About Brattlebrook Park
Brattlebrook Park is a local conservation area managed by the City of Pittsfield. Overall, visitors have several options for an enjoyable day of outdoor recreation in Western Massachusetts.
Immediately upon arriving at the parking lot, visitors will find an expansive soccer field. With its freshly cut grass, this field is perfect for both competitive team play and individual practice. Then, beyond this sporting complex, visitors will access scenic views of the surrounding Berkshires. These mountains often erupt with vibrant oranges and yellows when the weather cools in autumn.
The park also offers plenty of wildlife-viewing opportunities. Visitors will find three different ecosystems—a forest, a meadow, and a wetland---throughout the park. In the forest, visitors can see an abundance of local bird species, including woodpeckers. The meadow is then an ideal place to locate insects and wildflowers throughout the spring and summer. In the wetland, finally, visitors will easily hear the sounds of amphibians throughout the year's warmer months.
Visitors will find a small parking lot off Longview Terrace Extension.
