If one stays in the Tanglewood area for concerts and one wants to stretch the legs to get some exercise in, go there. It is nothing special.

I didn't have much time left of my weekend in the Berkshires but I really wanted to go for a quick hike. Kennedy Park was the answer. Easy parking at the Arcadian Shop and well marked. At first I was very aware of road noise,...More

Love this park. Great trails for a "hike" with young kids. Easy parking at the Arcadian Shop, benches scattered throughout, and well-marked trails (so little ones can help navigate). Hike to one of the vernal ponds to see minnows, tadpoles, and more!

Very pretty trails through the woods. Fun in the warmer weather as well as good for cross-country skiing or snow shoeing (if you have your own equipment). In back of the Lenox Shops.

Kennedy Park is the perfect place to go snowshoeing. The trails are well marked and easy to follow. There is tremendous variation on the available trails.Arcadian Shop gives out free maps and also rents snowshoes.

We were not able to snow shoe since there was no snow so we hiked Kennedy Park. It was challenging due to the ice but manageable. The trails were easily navigated and we had a great day.

Staying next to one of the park's entrances I took advantage to walk the well marked trails often. Loved the relaxing walks. You can check the posted trail maps and decide what length walk suits you best.

No. Try nearby Pleasant Valley (Mass Audubon) instead. They have a lovely all access path that would be more suitable.
