About Memorial Park (Eastern Parcel)

Memorial Park is a calm, family-friendly spot for a picnic in Western Mass. Upon arrival, visitors will notice that the park is split into two sections: one on each side of Columbia Street.

The eastern part of the park features a memorial to service members from Adams who fought during World War I. Around the memorial, visitors will find an expansive lawn with a picnic table and ample space to lounge. Floodplain wildlife species dominate the park's edge, and large trees provide excellent protection from the sun on warm summer days in the Berkshires.

This part of the park also supplies access to the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail: an easy, paved path from North Adams to Pittsfield. Visitors to Memorial Park can travel south along the trail and walk, bike, or rollerblade toward downtown Adams. This section of the path offers scenic views of the Hoosac Range to the east.

Once finished with the eastern side, visitors can explore the park's other side. That part of the property has benches, plenty of shade, and a water fountain. There is also a little free library for visitors looking to relax and read in the shade.

There is no designated parking along Columbia Street for Memorial Park. Visitors should either park on Valley Street or further down Columbia towards Adams.
