Elm Park is a beautiful park. It is free and varies by the season. The playground for kids was completely renovated a number of years ago. It is a nice place to walk. Keep in mind you need to watch your children at all times, as you do every where today. The park can get busy in the summer. My... More

Elm park has a lot to offer. Wonderful walking trails and newly renovated playground for the children. Open air, large trees, central pond with two walkover bridges. Only problem is the trash in the pond that still needs to be taken care of, but is much better than before renovation.

Playground for the kids. Some farm animals. Viet Nam memorial should be visited. The number of names carved in granite may surprise you. Some trails through the woods. A pond with benches.

Watch out for duck doo or is it pooh....At any rate, stopped by this lovely little park for some quiet time and a stroll. Lots of benches in great condition throughout the park to sit and ponder. The play area was very active with families and it seemed very nice. There were a number of folks walking dogs on and... More

I have seen this park hundreds of time since I travel by it all of the time. Elm Park was rebuilt a decade ago and is nondescript. There's a bas relief statue across the street on Park Avenue. Traffic moves fast across this location!

This park is gorgeous. It's big, beautiful, has paths, a beautiful bridge, and a tremendous playground. Really, the playground is AWESOME. My kids had a great time. The only issue is it's in the middle of Worcester. While this is not a particularly bad area, there are quite a few unsavory characters hanging around the playground. It's quite concerning. So...

My kids were brought up going to Elm park and now my grand kids visit the park. The park is visited by all ages either walking by themselves, walking their dogs, watching their kids or grand kids play or simply sit and relax.

We had some time to kill so we stopped at this park. It is ok. There is a pond in the middle, a play ground, and some benches scattered about. That is about it. It covers about a city block or two. There are no restrooms in this park.

Awesome walk around Pokemon Go both inside the park and just around the perimeter. Even better short walk to That's Entertainment where they constantly toss out lures. Good fun open setting Go Pokemon Go!
