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.

Elm Park is the heart of Worcester in many ways, but it doesn't really rate as a world-class tourist attraction. They periodically have interesting outdoor art exhibits and birds (ducks, geese, hawks) are attracted to the water. But, it does need some upgrades to be completed that are taking way too much time.

This park is being renovated but offers a great place to walk, sit and view the ponds, have children in the playground area or take pictures on the bridge. A jewel in the city

The park is open and inviting. There are 2 water areas in the park with a nice path around them both. A very nice playground for the kids. There are bathroom facilities available. Lots of places to eat near by.
