Our Plan Continues...
The Berkshire Carousel red, white and blue building for the
amusement ride is now built and located at the corner of
South Church and Center streets in Pittsfield, MA.
The main structure housing the merry-go-round is now built
called phase 1, 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.
Temporary sheds have been added to the property to serve
as our Gift Shop and Concession Stands until we can raise the
monies to begin phase 2 & 3 of our building.
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 to
our Legacy Building Campaign. All contributions will
be honored and proudly displayed on the permanent
Giving Tree Wall at The Berkshire Carousel pavilion.
We are Building our Legacy.... one brick at a time.
