West Side Riverway Project

In pursuing the goals identified in the Urban River Visions Plan the City of Pittsfield has completed acquisition of 2 acres of abandoned and vacant land fronting on the Housatonic River in the West Side Neighborhood.  The goal of this project is to transform these formerly vacant and blighted properties into passive parks providing recreational opportunities and common open space for residents in the dense residential neighborhood.

This project will provide recreational and educational opportunities for residents while providing access to visibility of the Housatonic River.
