Hubbard Park is the same kind of oasis for Montpelier that Central Park is for Manhattan, just on a smaller, wilder scale. Great trails, open meadows, picnic sites -- some with outdoor cooking amenities. The Hubbard Park Tower is a great place to see 360 degrees of central Vermont. Great for children, dogs, families, hikes, cross-country skiing.

Loved the view from on top of the tower in Hubbard Park. Hike up from the meadow takes some time and effort or drive close by going up Terrace St. Leaves everywhere, wear good shoes for the rough roadway up. Nice place for a picnic on a warm day.

The car ride up is a bit intimidating and it was hard to park. Beautiful view although we did not make it all the way to the top.

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.
