Goshen, Massachusetts is a small town stuck in the foothills of the Berkshire Mts. in Western Massachusetts. There's a general store, post office, elementary school, and a restaurant with an inn on top called the Whale Inn. There's a tennis court behind the parking lot which the post office, school, and church share. On weekdays, ususally when the baseball team has a game, a lot of the older kids like me go up to the center and watch the game and play on the school playground. It's really fun.
Our town is very small, but in the summer it's population nearly doubles. That's because of two lakes- Highland Lake, which is up my road, and Damon Pond, which is on the other side of town. People from all over the East Coast have cabins on these lakes. There's one park in Goshen, a state park called the D.A.R. It stands for Daughters of the American Revolution. There's a lake where you can go boating and fishing or swimming, campgrounds, a fire tower, and lots of paths so you can hike or ride bikes. In the summer the swimming beach is usually full and there's a little hotdog and ice-cream stand there. In the D.A.R there's a summer camp for handicapped children and children with no disablities. It's called Camp Howe and it's the first 4-H camp in Massachusetts. It's widely known and people come from all over the country. Last year a child came from Hawaii!
Goshen may be very small, but there's always something to keep you busy.
