About Main Street Ashland Street Mini Park
Main Street / Ashland Mini Park is a small park on a street corner in downtown North Adams. The park is a perfect place for a rest or a lunchtime picnic. There are two benches, which sit underneath the shade of small trees. On hot summer days in Western Mass, these benches are an ideal reprieve from the heat. Visitors can sit, relax, and watch the traffic flow on Main Street. There is also plenty of landscaping that blooms when the weather begins to warm in the spring.
Visitors will find the park on the southwest corner of Main Street and Ashland Street. On the north side of the park, there is a monument to the Hoosac Tunnel. This 19th-century rail tunnel travels underneath the Berkshires toward the east; it took 20 years to complete and cost 200 people their lives.
Because there are no designated parking spots, visitors should park elsewhere in downtown North Adams.
