Parks & Recreation

THE TOWN PARKS

George M. Smith Park is a nearly two acre parcel of land conveniently located in the center of the hamlet. The ballfield was rarely used and fell into disrepair. In 2017, the Berkshire Recreation Committee (BRC), along with other volunteers, revitalized the infield, repaired and improved the backstop and constructed dugouts for the ballplayers. Utilization immediately increased primarily from Little League and middle school teams and often Berkshire’s streets are lined with the vehicles of spectators. More recent improvements have added to the park’s popularity. Financed by a grant and augmented by volunteers, an elaborate children’s playground was installed in 2018 and has proven to be immensely popular. A soccer field has also been added to the park. 

Work on Berkshire Creekside Park, located on five acres west of the Town Hall, was begun in 2020, financed by numerous grants written by the BRC. A pavilion was constructed that year and two sections of the walkway were installed the following year.
