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!

Worcester spent a lot of time and money renovating this lovely. They redid the bridges over the ponds, landscaped the area and put in a large playground with picnic tables.

A great place to meet; eat; converse; sunbathe; read a book or nap! Sun or shade - or playground - you'll enjoy it here. *** [And wheelchair friendly picnic tables, too!]

Stopped at this park while waiting for my youngest to finish his college orientation at Becker college. My oldest and I had a nice walk around the paths and over the bridges. Park was very clean and playground seemed to be in good repair. Lots of benches along the paths and picnic tables by the playground.

Elm Park is a lovely place to walk around on a nice day. It has a playground for the kids and ducks to feed. There are sometimes temporary art exhibits. The semi famous Turtleboy statue is also located here.

The park was designed by the famous Olmstead, who designed the belt of parks in Boston, and who also designed parks all over the country as far away as California. It is a lovely experience at all times of year, right now it is full of trees in bloom, ducks in the lake and cute kids running around. In summer... More

This park has come a long way. They have a lovely play area for children that is busy on nice days. In the summer there is a hot dog truck that comes around. I like to walk laps around it during my lunch break.

The park itself was nice and the playground was pretty clean. Really liked the bridges but the water was kind of nasty.. Had a Hot Dog at the food truck My daughter and I were not impressed. Other than that we had a nice time..
