Ramshorn Island is a small island on Lake Quinsigamond. This island is located on the south side of the newly renovated Burns Bridge. While many of the islands on Lake Quinsigamond are privately owned, Ramshorn Island is owned by the City of Worcester, therefore it is open to public use. 

Worcester's island park is currently only accessible by boat. This island became a city park in 1919 and was the former home of various boat clubs.
