“Was over rated.”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

This is an average city park. The glowing reviews are about the town not the park. I am sure three are days when the locals make
it look good. Not today, fence broken, litter noticed.

“I love this place!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Every time I visit Brattleboro I need to go to this park at least for a little while. I simply love it. Just a simple place where you can walk and stay in peace in the middle of a hectic day. Difficult to explain in words, but the atmosphere is very good.

“When you think New England...”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

If you have never been to New England and all you to go by are the movies you have seen, then your mind's picture will be painted with a central park Perhaps with a gazebo where they play music or young lads propose to their best gals, or there would be park benches with people actually sitting and reading or watching people go by, and the grass would smell freshly cut. Or you would expect dogs pulling on their leases as they spy another...yes, that would be a perfect New England Park or "Common"....and it exists as pictured in Brattleboro, VT. The Chamber of Commerce will gladly promote all of the Brattleboro attractions, but their finest is this peaceful, manicured common. Stop by and slow down a little, pick up a sandwich and have lunch. The best things in life can be free.

“A True New England Feel”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Brattleboro's Common has a great feeling about it. There is nearly always someone walking a dog, sitting with a book, or just enjoying the little gazebo. There is a special "music in the park" series that the town organizes during the summer. The first Saturday in June, the park is taken over by the Strolling of the Heifers parade and festival.

“Brattleboro Common”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

A beautiful and bucolic location next to downtown Brattleboro. Features park benches, bandstand, war monuments and the scene of annual Memorial Day services. Special events throughout the year. Chamber of Commerce maintains an information center here, too.
