Canoe Meadows belongs to Mass Audubon Society and is unique in that the location is right in a residential neighborhood, a mile from the center of town. They've host a community organic garden for the past 30 years, plot price is reasonable, in addition to how-to programs. There's been additions this year, a new pavilion with picnic tables. And over two dozen scarecrows have also just been added. There's always birding, and you can do it solo or in an organized group walk. And you can contribute to Audubon bird monitoring program by downloading a checklist from their site.Or you can always meander the gentle trails. Mosquitoes are abundant this year, but with fall weather they'll not be a problem. Great place to snowshoe too! Free for Society members and a reasonable $3 for all others. Hours are from dawn to dusk.

Nice gentle flat trails. Lovely walk in woods. Be sure to have insect repellant if you walk along the river.

A secret treasure of Pittsfield & the Berkshires! Never crowded, and actually easy to miss because it is not well-signed (but worth looking for!) Very gentle trails through woodland, wetlands, riverside & more.

This is such a wonderful place to relax and take in nature. There are many well groomed hiking trails in a gorgeous wildlife setting. Nothing is better than a warm summer morning doing yoga along the housatonic river, or x-country skiing through the fields!
