Springside Park Conservancy was formed in Sept. 2013 by representatives of four community organizations involved in stewardship and programming at Springside Park. A tax-exempt nonprofit, its governing board is now composed of representatives of ten organizations, local residents, and two advisory city council members.
Since its founding, the Conservancy has worked with the community to develop a Master Plan adopted by the City of Pittsfield; successfully advocated for over $3.5 million in public and private investment; organized and cultivated events and programming for the public; maintained public garden areas; overseen tree-planting, combated invasive species, and managed seasonal clean up efforts.
