About Parade Grounds

The Parade Grounds on Main Street in Becket is a small park rich in history. This park is where colonial soldiers gathered in 1760 and trained for the Revolutionary War. The park offers the opportunity for families to picnic under the shade of trees or play in the open fields. Visitors can sit back on a bench and contemplate the past and how the grounds were used in the 1760s. This historic site is unique in the Berkshires and Western Massachusetts.

Visitors are encouraged to park on the road shoulder or in the church parking lot as there is no parking lot for the park.
