About Pleasant Street Park
Pleasant Street Park is a small, family-friendly picnic area off the Ashuwillticook Trail in the center of Adams. Visitors to the park will find it perfect for a trailside pitstop in the Berkshires. A bike rack makes storing bikes easy, and various picnic tables offer an ideal space for a lunchtime rest. Awnings cover the picnic tables, providing a blanket of shade on hot summer days. Visitors can relax on one of the park's benches and watch the traffic flow through downtown.
The park is also a trailhead for the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail: a repurposed railroad pathway that travels from North Adams to Pittsfield. The easy trail is perfect for biking, walking, wildlife viewing, and rollerblading through small Western Massachusetts towns. Going south on the path, visitors will pass along the shops and restaurants of downtown Adams. Northbound will take visitors beside the Hoosic River, through the outskirts of town, and toward the old Adams train station. Much of this section of the trail has lampposts for safe travel at nighttime.
There is plenty of parking for the park off Amory Court, south of Pleasant Street.
