Green Hill Park represents a landscape which has been greatly transformed over the past several centuries, from wilderness to farmland, to a country estate and finally, to a unique multi-use public park. Once an estate belonging to the Green family, the park is almost 500 acres and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Development of the land was carefully planned and managed by the Green family for over a century. The park offers unique vistas and panoramas to residents from the rolling Millstone, Crown, Green and Chandler Hills as well as areas of mature woodlands and open space. The City has acquired additional adjacent open space in an effort to protect, enhance and expand the park.
Worcester’s largest and most diverse park includes a golf course and a lighted field for football, two for softball, and five for soccer. There is also a petting zoo, arboretum, playgrounds and a network of drives and parking areas. The State-wide Vietnam Veterans Memorial is located within the core of the park close to Green Hill Pond, a 30-acre “great pond.” Multiple gazebos and picnic areas provide areas to relax and take in the view.
