  • A beautiful Park in the middle of the city. Great view of the pond with picnicking areas all around. There is even a playground and a zoo for the kids. One of the most wonderful things about this park is it houses the state Vietnam Memorial. What a beautiful and moving tribute.
  • The trails are so much fun for mountain bikes!!! Although some people may find them very rocky and better for walking. But anyone who enjoys a little single-track challenge will have a blast here! However with that being said you should always be with other people because its a hot spot for wandering weirdos and drugs. Also bring pepper spray because lots of locals let their pit bulls loose, even though dogs are not allowed at green hill park! The skate park is the other great attraction here!
  • Nice park with lots of hiking trails. Good views of the city and surrounding area. I wish the trails were marked on the Google map.
  • A nice quiet park, lots of areas to let your kids run and play, towards the back of the park is a play area.
  • Green Hill Park is a peaceful excursion for a quiet afternoon. The Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a nice contemplative space with a nice garden. There is a fantastic hill for sledding in the snow. Several trails are scattered through the park, and the landscaping is well kempt. Trees often have little informative plaques. The park even has a small petting zoo. I knocked off a star for the dilapidated and partially condemned plastic play structure, as it disappoints my son every time we go. Otherwise, this is one of my favorite parks in the area.
