Grant Square is a 1.7-acre park located in the Green Hill neighborhood of Worcester, near Lincoln Street, I-290, and Belmont Street. The park property was acquired in two sections - a smaller portion in 1892, and a larger tract (from private owners) in 1904. The smaller site was originally intended for use as a school house, but after the larger piece was acquired, the two were combined into a single tract for park use. The origin of the park's current name is unknown; it was originally called "St. Charles Park".
In 2016, the Green Hill Neighborhood Association celebrated the official reopening of the park at their Annual Community Picnic. In 2015, the city completed stage one of the park's rehab, installing a state-of-the-art playground, a brand new basketball court and community garden beds.
Grant Square Park has 30 community garden beds where locals can create their very own gardens! Through these gardens, the community can contribute to the beauty and variety of plants in this park.
The garden area next to Mt. Vernon Street has 10 raised beds in addition to a small shed, and is used by the YouthGROW program. The other garden area, near Windsor Street, contains 20 beds for use by neighborhood residents. Each of the beds is wooden and measures 4' by 8'.
