Laurel Park Arts

Laurel Park Arts is the cultural initiative of the Laurel Park Association, a non profit organization that offers artistic, educational, spiritual, and cultural programs to residents of Northampton and Western Massachusetts in the historic buildings and grounds of Laurel Park. A central feature of the park is its tabernacle, a beautifully restored, covered outdoor theater and music venue.

LPA runs programs in Laurel Park with the gracious cooperation of Homeowners At Laurel Park (HALP). For questions about living in Laurel Park, email laurelparkec@gmail.com

The Laurel Park Association owns and manages 9 acres of woodland north of the cottages. We maintain it as a conservation area, where it provides a buffer and natural area available to residents. A loop trail runs through it, starting and ending on paved roads within the Park proper.

The woods help preserve the camp feeling of the cottages. Nearby, across Coles Meadow Road, the Broad Brook Coalition maintains Northampton's Fitzgerald Lake nature preserve. As a result, even though Laurel Park is near I91 and within Northampton's city limits, it still feels like a camp retreat in the woods.

The loop trail goes through the Split Rock, one of the signature natural features of the Nine Acre Woods.
