The City of Worcester offers recreation and cultural activities for all ages including youth athletic programs, tournaments, parks programs, concerts and other special events in neighborhood parks across the City.
The Friends of Newton Hill is excited to announce the newest project to come to the Hill: a free, Nordic Ski park with groomed trails fit for cross-country skiing, fat tire biking and winter walking coming to both Newton Hill and Elm Park proper.
It will be the only groomed, public-access cross country ski track in Central Massachusetts, promoting healthy, safe, outdoor physical activity in a city with limited options for free, outdoor winter activities.
The City's only public disc-golf course was opened in 2009 in Elm Park's Newton Hill section. The course is a full 18 hole, par 58 course that has players travel up and down the hill, enjoying a fun and free round of excitement. The course is maintained by local players and volunteers, and parking as available in the Doherty High School parking lot.
