About Mt. Pleasant Playground
Mt. Pleasant Playground is a play area and hiking trailhead near downtown Williamstown. Overall, visitors will have several options for an enjoyable day of outdoor recreation in the Berkshires.
Upon arrival at the parking lot, visitors will find an expansive playground with swing sets, slides, and musical instruments. Then, visitors will see a picnic table and a park grill on the other side of the park. Families can barbecue, eat lunch or dinner, and then play on the play structure.
