City Parks


Parks and open spaces have been a part of Worcester's history since the City's founding. In June 1669, the Worcester Common was the first land set aside by the town for "common open space". However, the best known historic park in Worcester is Elm Park. Purchased in 1854, using public funds, it is recognized as one of the first purchases of land for a public park in the United States. Both the Common and Elm Park are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Worcester has sixty parks encompassing nearly 1,300 acres which offers residents and visitors a wealth of activities with its vast array of green and blue space. Given Worcester's Central location we are blessed with an abundance of park lands.


The City of Worcester has sixty parks located throughout the City.
