I got a parking ticket - it was written 4 minutes after my meter ran out! 4 minutes - were they waiting for it?? I was in a rental car, busy with work... More

Every time I visit Brattleboro I need to go to this park at least for a little while. I simply love it. Just a simple place where you can walk and stay in peace in the middle of a hectic day. Difficult to explain in words, but the atmosphere is very good.

There is a special "music in the park" series that the town organizes during the summer. The first Saturday in June, the park is taken over by the Strolling of the Heifers parade and... More

A beautiful and bucolic location next to downtown Brattleboro. Features park benches, bandstand, war monuments and the scene of annual Memorial Day services. Special events throughout the year. Chamber of Commerce maintains an information center here, too.
