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.
