Blackstone Gateway Park

Blackstone Gateway Park

Blackstone Gateway Park is located approximately three miles south of the Worcester Downtown Business District on the edge of the Quinsigamond Village neighborhood. 

This new riverfront park stands out as a unique urban park in the City providing recreational amenities while maintaining the feel of a forested park surrounded by flowing water and stands of large canopy trees. 

The park features 3,000 linear feet (about a half-mile) of accessible walking paths, elevated boardwalks and three bridges crossing a section of the Middle River that runs into the headwaters of the Blackstone River, adjacent to McKeon Road. The park also features a brand new visitor center!

Included along the trails and boardwalks are observational platforms, kiosks and interpretive signage providing historical and ecological information about the Blackstone River and the role it played in the history of Worcester and the Blackstone Valley Corridor.
