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...

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.
