Rockwood Field is located right next door to Worcester State University on Chandler Street. George I. Rockwood donated the land that now makes up Rockwood Field to the City of Worcester in 1940 with the intention to create an area that would be placed under the Parks and Recreation Department. He wanted the land to be developed for public park and playground use and enjoyment. 

In 1950 the City Council approved and ordered that a portion of Rockwood Field, a public playground, be used for school purposes. However, in 1954, the City Council approved and ordered that section of Rockwood Field, to be transferred back to the Parks and Recreation Commission.

Between 1940 to the present, there have been many changes and upgrades made to Rockwood Field. Today, multiple sports programs make use of the facility including little league baseball, Babe Ruth baseball, adult baseball, softball leagues, youth soccer leagues, football leagues and college athletic programs and teams.
