About Clapp Park
Clapp Park is a play area, walking path, and athletic complex managed by the City of Pittsfield. The park is perfect for a day of family-friendly outdoor recreation in the Berkshires. For athletes, the park offers several opportunities for practice and competitive play. During the appropriate athletic seasons, the main lawn becomes a soccer field. The park also features an outdoor basketball court off eastbound West Housatonic Street.
At the front of the park, visitors will find an expansive baseball field. Batting cages line the side of the park, allowing players to practice their swing. An outdoor walking track then surrounds the baseball field and provides space for walking or running.
There is also an additional baseball/softball field at the far corner of the park, near the end of the driveway. This field has bleachers for spectators.
Next to the basketball court, visitors will find a playground and a sprayscape. Families can picnic, eat lunch, and play on hot summer days. Then, there is a large sledding hill in wintertime, ideal for snow days in Western Massachusetts.
Visitors will find parking for Clapp Park along a small driveway off West Housatonic Street. There is also a dirt parking lot further down the driveway.
