About Giggle Park

Giggle Park, located behind the Great Barrington Town Hall, provides hours of family-friendly fun in one of the most frequented parks in town. The park contains a fenced playground with a wood chip base and modern play structures, including jungle gyms, monkey bars, and slides. One of the playground's most beloved features is its unique "ring walker," a spinning ring-shaped structure on which users can walk, sit, or lie down. Another big hit in the playground is the climbing arch, which acts as both an arched monkey bar and a seesaw.

Outside of this area, parents can relax in one of the many benches surrounding the playground as they take in the sights of Great Barrington's picturesque downtown. The park's most iconic structure is its gazebo, which provides groups and individuals the perfect spot to escape the sun while enjoying the outdoors. The gazebo and its surrounding space are often scattered with families picnicking, students studying, and children playing, offering a glimpse into the vibrant life of Western Massachusetts. After a day at the park, visitors love walking into downtown, which contains a variety of shops, restaurants, and fun things to do in the Berkshires. The park also serves as a great spot to take your food to go. Be on the lookout for performances in the park, as Arlo Guthrie's lead guitarist, David Grover, popularized the spot as a family-friendly performance spot in the early 2000s.
