Robert C. Antonelli, Jr., Assistant Commissioner
A park and open space system is not a standalone or isolated complex within a community. In fact, where parks and open space systems provide the most value to its citizenry, it is a highly integrated and highly connected, highly accessible series of properties and programs where good health and well being, athletic competition, informal play, culture, art, history, social interaction and just basic fun get woven together to form amazing and wonderful parts of everyday life.
Please come and help us plan the future of Worcester's Parks, Recreation and Open Space System. Your input is essential.
