The Berkshire Carousel red, white and blue building for the
amusement ride will be located at the corner of South Church
and Center streets in Pittsfield, MA.
The main structure housing the merry-go-round will be built
first, framed by the steel of the former pavilion from the
Ponterril YMCA summer camp. The board of directors of the
Pittsfield Family YMCA voted to donate the pavilion, which
hasn't been used for over a decade.
The Berkshire Carousel plan will require at least 10,000
square feet for our main carousel, administrative offices,
educational workshop spaces, art and exhibition space,
functional carving workshop, functional painting workshop,
and a restoration shop to fix or repair broken and older
In addition there will be event space available for parties,
special events, meetings, workshops, gift shop and
concessions. Once up and running, the attraction will provide
100,000 rides in the first year of operation.
Any individual, group, or organization may contribute t
o our Legacy Building Campaign. All contributions will
be honored and proudly displayed on the permanent
Giving Tree Wall at The Berkshire Carousel pavilion.
