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.

I have not been to Elm park in about 3 years but let me be the first to tell you, what a MESS. I left there outright depressed! Between the construction, garbage, and almost every park bench completely destroyed I couldn't wait to get out of there. To be fair it's being worked on but for now do yourself a... More
