Berkeley Green

Berkeley Green is located in the middle of downtown Saranac Lake, at the intersection of Broadway and Main streets, which makes this relaxing place more than a park — it’s a gathering space.

During the warmer months, you might find people enjoying a picnic or reading on the grass. If it’s a Wednesday evening in July or August, the tiered lawn is likely packed shoulder-to-shoulder for Music on the Green, a free summer concert series that showcases an eclectic selection of bands playing genres like funk, folk, rock, and gypsy jazz.

Every now and again, park-goers might also hear the clanking of the 6er bell as intrepid hikers complete the six mountains required for the Saranac Lake 6er challenge: Baker, St. Regis, Scarface, Ampersand, Haystack, and McKenzie. Step onto the stage and you’ll find the official 6er kiosk and trail register. This is the start and finish for those vying for Ultra 6er status — that is, climbing all six mountains in a 24-hour period.

Speaking of mountains, look around and you’ll also find a Walk of Fame plaque for Herb Clark, the first documented person to climb the 46 highest mountains in the Adirondacks. After becoming a 6er, consider joining Clark on the list of Adirondack 46ers!

In winter, snow blankets the ground and lights go up as Berkeley Green morphs into a festive, decked-out space that plays host to carolers and a large holiday tree.
