This park is located at the summit of Bell Hill, also known as Chandler Hill Park. It features Bell Hill Pond, formerly known as Bladder Pond, which was Worcester's first reservoir/water supply in 1845.

Chandler Hill is bordered by Belmont Street to the north, Shrewsbury Street to south and east and a densely packed neighborhood of mostly apartment buildings to the west.

In one area of the park, you can play basketball, play on the playground, go for a swim or simply look out at Bell Pond. In another area, Chandler Hill Park, you can play a variety of sports depending on the season on the multipurpose field!
