I like their icecream and if you go here you can also walk along the river there is sidewalks the whole way and even a crosswalk to get there since the icecream place is on the other side from the river.

Heritage Farm Ice Cream & Restaurant was established in 1976. Prior to that, it was operated by John Glennie and his wife Olive from 1936 to 1974 as Glennies Ice Cream. John had several locations in Lowell. Along with the Pawtucket Blvd. store, he operated one on Gorham Street, and made his famous Belgium Cream Candies. When the Glennie family sold, it was eventually purchased by the Howard Family of Waltham, MA., who were also operating Dean Dairy Ice Cream from 1964 to 2005. Upon taking ownership of the Lowell store the name “Glennies” was changed to “Heritage Farm Ice Cream” to coincide with the building of the new Heritage State Park, along the Merrimack River, in 1974. Since then it has been operated by Robert J Howard, Jr, who graduated Bentley College with a BS Degree in Business Management. After operating the stand from 1978 to 1989, Bob added on to the old take out place and turned it into a restaurant and ice cream stand with a dining room to accommodate 46 seats. Another addition was put on in 2008 and 40 more seats were added to the new fireside dining room, which allowed more space for catered events and family parties.
