Very nice, large park with fountains, ducks, bike path. Playground for the kids. Walking, beautiful shaded areas. As always with Olmstead parks, just the perfect combination of places for activities and places for peace. Beautiful haven in the middle of Worcester. Love it every time we're there.

One of Frederick Law Olsmtead's first parks this is a nice place to walk around, bring your kids to a playground, have photos taken for special occasions (once the renovations are done) Beautiful rhododendrons and the under repair bridge is stunning.

As parks go this is one of the nicer ones I have seen. It is still just a park though! To it's credit at least there is play equipment for the kids which is becoming increasingly rare. Nice little ponds and bridges and lots of space for walking and running.

Nice park. Just underwent another makeover and offers walking and bike-path within the park. The playground area is large enough to accommodate many children and there is plenty of open grass for soccer, frisbee, volleyball, or laying on a blanket in the sun. The ice cream/food truck is a staple at the park and offers a variety of cold novelties... More

Now that the renovations are almost complete the park is "refreshed" with nice benches for sitting and well-manicured paths. It has a neighborhood feel with lots of kids in the playground, joggers, walkers, dogs, and an ice cream truck. It is friendly, safe, and clean. The Olmstead design is still apparent, giving the park a touch of history and architectural... More

The bridges over the pond, joggers and walkers. Family friendly.I think they have concerts in the summer there. Parking at a minimum.

While efforts are being made to 'clean up' the park, it still reeks of urine along most of the pathways. I would NOT walk through this park at night. And it's such a shame. It is an historic park of Worc at whose bridge many brides have had their wedding pictures taken. There are nicer places to take your children... More

Elm park is one of my favorite parks to go to in Worcester. I usually take my dog here for a walk. Usually during the Summer they sponsor the Art in the Park exhibit which is always neat to see. Last summer they had the food truck festival, my sister was visiting and we were able to take her to... More

This dog-friendly park is a welcomed respite downtown Worcester. Although parking can be a challenge, there are scenic walkways and plenty of places to sit and read, watch the pond, have a picnic, etc. Recommend as a mini-getaway during a busy day.

New equipment, bike paths,bridge repairs underway, art exhibits,summer evening concerts, close to coffee shop, pizza, market for restrooms. It will be great if Worcester officials can see their way through to finish much needed repairs to open restrooms. Upscale food truck would be a welcome addition as well.There can be shady goings on in the park at times. Not a... More
