Photos of Springside Park in Pittsfield, MA
Photos of Springside Park in Pittsfield, MA on June 15, 2013. We were surprised to see several lilac trees still in full bloom; lilac season having come and gone back home in Lenox! The Hebert Arboretum is located there, amid 231 acres of meadows, woodlands, rolling hills, streams, marshes and ponds which support 50 species of native trees, 338 species of plant life, and a tremendous wildflower variety of over 135 species. The park is host to a ‘migration funnel’ where migrating songbirds come in the Spring and Fall for sanctuary and rest.
