I have lived in Montpelier most of my life and enjoy every minute in Hubbard park. From casual walks to running trails, this park is truly a gem. Lots of walking/running/biking trails to activity shelters and there is always the amazing tower. A must see.

A great place to stretch your legs while traveling. A quick hike to the top rewarded with an observatory tower from the early 1900s that you can climb. Worth it if you've been cooped up in a car and have an extra hour to kill. Amazing views at the tower's top!

This is not really what you think of as an urban park. It is a densely wooded hill with hiking trails. The trails are quite steep. Parking is iffy and not easily accessed. We choose to park at Winter Street entrance and it is a climb with a vehicle before you reach and area to park. Very few parking spaces... More

Our plan was to eat a picnic lunch at Hubbard Park and then climb the tower. We did not know that you can't actually park there. It is located at the top of a steep hill. In order to get there, you park at the bottom of the hill and hike up a very steep road just to enter the... More

I went here yesterday to explore at lunch. It was nice to run around for the trials. The tower is pretty cool. It is hilly for sure if you want to walk. I walk from the state house to the tower. Will go here again for sure.

Was looking at things to do in Montpelier other that eat, drink, or shop. Saw this park and decided to check it out. It is not well marked on maps or directions for the Garmin except by street names. I entered from the west side (off of Elm Street) and drove all the roads. Looked like a good spot to... More

I go here often. I usually ride my bike around the copious amount of trails or walk my buster. Great place for self reflection and meditation too.

Amazing that you can go walking in Hubbard Park and forget that you are in Vermont's capital city. The park sits high up above the Statehouse and its golden dome. Woodsy, with picnic shelters if that's what you want. Great to sit and enjoy nature, walk your dog, or go for a stroll. Well cared for without feeling fussy or... More

Was looking for some good places to walk when conditions on most of the trails were not so great because of ice. The footing on the Hubbard Park trails was quite decent and the tower is open year round (a fact found on tripadvisor when I couldn't find it on the city's web site). We parked on a city street...
