Lake Park is Worcester's third largest municipal park. It is located directly across from Lake Quinsigamond. It houses a state of the art baseball field (Tivnan Field).
Lake Park is largely rural and is split by Hamilton Street. At the north it is bordered by Nonquit Street, at the east it is lined by Lake Avenue and on the south and west it is bordered by Coburn Avenue. In the summer of 1884 (before the vote on the Park Act) Horace H. Bigelow and Edward L. Davis donated over one hundred acres to the City to establish a park on the shores of Lake Quinsigamond.
The public enthusiasm for parks sparked by the gift of Lake Park further ensured the almost unanimous approval - 5,094 to 181 - of the Parks Act in the fall 1884 election.
In 1956, about 27 acres were taken by the State for the development of Lake Quinsigamond, leaving approximately 74 acres of non-waterfront property for the City of Worcester public use.
Quinsigamond State Park found across Lake Avenue is located on the shore of Lake Quinsigamond. Here, you can swim in the lake, enjoy a picnic, play tennis or walk along the paths.
Further down the lake to the north is another section of the State Park, Quinsigamond State Park (Regatta Point). There is another swimming and picnic area here. You can also rent boats (non-motorized) and go fishing. Regatta Point is known for its sailboat activities, as well as hosting high school, college and national crew races in the spring.
Aside from baseball at Lake Park, you’ll find a softball diamond and a fully enclosed basketball court a short walk up Hamilton Street on the western side of the park at the corner of Coburn Ave. Grab some friends for a pickup game or just practice your shot when visiting this beautiful location.
