Cookson Field is located within the College Hill residential neighborhood in south-central Worcester, near Holy Cross College and the Auburn border. The park site was purchased by the City of Worcester on June 3, 1936 from Herbert E. Howe, and named for Mayor Walter Cookson.
The park was purchased in 1888, and it was named Crompton Park and was then an open field which was used as a playground. Whether you and your kids are into sports, splashing around, enjoying a relaxing picnic or playing on a playground, there's something for everyone at Crompton Park!
