About The Spruces Community Park
The Spruces Community Park is an expansive walking area that connects to the Mohican Recreational Path. Upon arrival at the park, visitors will find an extensive array of flat gravel paths. These paths travel throughout the park's meadows, offering plenty of wildlife-viewing opportunities. Songbirds and insects, for example, are easily seen throughout the park during spring and summer.
On the park's east side, visitors will also find a picnic area with scenic views of the Berkshires. This is an ideal spot to eat lunch, relax, and watch the clouds pass overhead. When the weather cools in autumn, the surrounding mountains showcase the vibrant yellows and oranges of fall foliage.
At the northeastern corner of the park, the Mohican Recreational Path begins and travels along the Hoosic River toward a parking lot off Syndicate Road. This path is perfect for biking, walking, or rollerblading in Western Massachusetts. There are also benches along the trail where visitors can rest on warm summer days. Just beyond the spruces, the path changes from gravel to pavement.
There is an entrance to The Spruces at the lion statues along Route 2. Visitors will then find two parking lots, one on each side of the park.
