The City of Pittsfield has aggregated several parcels fronting on the Housatonic River in the West Side Neighborhood to create two new parks. The goal of this project is to transform two sets of vacant and blighted properties into passive parks providing recreational opportunities and common open space for residents in the densely populated neighborhood, a HUD CDBG Income Eligible Area.
This project will provide recreational and educational opportunities for residents while improving access and visibility of the Housatonic River.
