Established in 1934, Berkshire Botanical Garden is one of the oldest public display gardens in the Northeast. Throughout its history the garden has emphasized education and inspiration specifically focused on engaging and meeting the needs of the local community.
Over the years the garden gradually expanded from its original extents to encompass more than 20 acres. In early 2019 Berkshire Botanical Garden acquired an additional 5-acre adjacent site, and appointed NBW to develop a comprehensive master plan for the newly enlarged gardens that will help increase outreach, programming and visitorship.
NBW is currently developing proposals focused on improving circulation and access, creating new and expanded collections and facilities, and strengthening the celebration of regional habitat types. The master plan seeks to enhance the visitor experience while improving garden operations and enabling Berkshire Botanical Garden to expand and deepen their commitment to horticulture, beauty, and the responsible stewardship of our natural environment.
