Hubbard Park has lots of trails; you can choose a quiet walk through the trees and over the brook, or take the old fire road up the hill to the tower and catch a view from the top. Kids love to muck around in the frog pond by the Summer Street entrance. There are a couple of picnic shelters, some... More

Beautiful and clean forested area. A bit of warning about getting to the tower: the paths are not well marked and it is easy to get lost. We were lucky enough to have a local point us in the right direction, but otherwise we would not have found it. The tower offers a pretty view of the mountains, but it's... More

This is a great park for relaxing, hiking or just to enjoy the beauty of nature. It backs up to the Vermont State Capitol building in the center of Montpellier.

There are miles of well maintained trails in Hubbard Park. If you are a dog lover, this is the place to be. This is a great place to let your dog have a good run and to do some doggie socializing.

This is a small woods with many trails to enjoy, or have a picnic on a sunny slope or, snow shoe in the winter. It is appropriate for walking with children, even with a stroller, and it is appropriate for someone practicing trail running.

Well worn trails, though not well marked. Nice fitness trail with exercise stations. If I lived here, I'd come often.

I attended a birthday party at Hubbard Park and the shelter was awesome, clean and a great place to visit. Very nice! Would consider hosting a reunion, birthday party or other type of gathering here.

I had a lovely ay hiking around Hubbard Park. It was too icy to go up into the watch tower but that was okay because the trails made up for it. My only criticism is that the trails are not well marked but when I was there I had enough people to ask which way to go.

I was almost going to give it a bad review because I live near one of the entrances, and fake-crunchy-hippies park their Subarus in my apt parking lot and walk their designer dogs in the park. But, it is a great park for a short hike, to explore a little out doors, and discover the Tower and view. Small enough... More

We went on a cold and rainy day but it was still amazing, The woods were gorgeous and the view from the top of the tower was breathtaking.
