Burncoat Street Playground is the northern most public park in Worcester. Located between Burncoat Street and West Boylston Street, this park offers activities such as basketball, tennis and volleyball, as well as a playground. Burncoat Street Playground is also fairly close to Kendrick Field.
The Burncoat Street Playground has play structures for kids of all ages. Whether kids want to swing, slide, climb or just run around, parents can relax on a shady bench while the little ones burn off some energy.
You'll feel like you can play your best games on these amazing courts! Both the basketball court and tennis court are paved and nicely maintained so that you can focus on improving your skills. Even more convenient is that the tennis court doubles as a volleyball court as well! Official markings for both tennis and volleyball can be found here to play either sport at your convenience.
