The train rides echo those from the 1930s though the 1950s that brought winter sports enthusiast to the Berkshires. According to the ProAdams press release, the trains would arrive in Adams on what is now the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail and skiers could then test their skills on the Thunderbolt Ski Trail.
There wasn't any. But that didn't stop the Springside Conversancy from hosting a winter carnival to bring families out to the park. A few dozen families found their way to Springside Park Saturday afternoon for a series of games and competition.
A new version of the winter carnival is set for Springside Park.
The Springside Conservancy is hosting an array of children's activities - from ice skating to sledding to snowshoeing - at the park on Feb. 17. from noon until 4 p.m. The goal is to get families back into the park for a few hours of winter outdoor recreation.
