Motorized Vehicles in City Parks

The Board of Park Commissioners would like to remind the community that the use of motorized off-road vehicles is prohibited within city parks.  The City has received numerous complaints from residents regarding this issue and intends to address the problem aggressively.  The Pittsfield Police Department is aware of this growing problem and will be strictly enforcing this and other park rules and regulations.  Fines for unauthorized use of off-road vehicles within the parks can be up to $200 per offense, and more if malicious damage occurs.  Residents are encouraged to contact the Pittsfield Police Department if they observe off-road vehicles, especially dirt bikes, operating in city parks.
