About Town Common
The Town Common is a small park at the center of downtown Adams. Though the common is small, it is perfect for a short picnic on a warm day. Visitors to the common will find a small grassy area with benches and large trees. At the peak of summer, when the temperatures are high in Western Massachusetts, these trees provide abundant shade to the park's lawn. Then, when fall arrives, the trees drop their leaves and produce a colorful carpet on the property. Visitors can read a book on the grass, rest on a bench, or watch the cars pass through town. A small gazebo also rests in the park, making it an idyllic space for small events.
The common is often decorated at different times of the year. For instance, various flowers are spread throughout the lawn when the weather warms, creating a wonderful fragrance. Visitors to the Town Common will also find a large metal statue of Susan B. Anthony in the park. The suffragette lived her first six years in the Berkshires before moving to New York.
There is no designated parking lot for the common. Visitors should instead park elsewhere in downtown Adams.
