The City of Worcester has made significant investment into its parks, playgrounds, pools and beaches in recent years, highlighted by the spray park at Cristoforo Colombo/East Park. The spray park is open noon - 7 p.m. during the summer and includes a recirculation system that filters water, similar to a swimming pool. Staff is present during all hours of operation.
The City of Worcester has one pool, two spray parks and four beaches. The city is also home to three state beaches and pools. All sites are open to the public 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. everyday during the summer.
The area around Coes Resevoir (commonly referred to as Coes Pond) consists of 20.79 acres and incorporates five properties including the John J. Binienda Memorial Beach, Coes Park, Columbus Park, the former Fenton Parcel and the former Knights of Columbus.
