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

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.

Upscale food truck would be a welcome addition as well.There can be shady goings on in the park at times. Not a... More

This park is always busy during the summer months and there are always activities going on. Nice little park to have a picnic, watch the ducks, or play with the children.

Worth a visit with it's quaint bridges and water areas. Occasional art work and concerts. Playground for children. The negative is that two busy roads border the park.

Beautiful in a day, evening, sunset. It's a good place to walk your dog and nice for jogging! But the traffics were always bad around the area. Sometimes the park got too crowded for little children.
