  • 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.
  • Beautiful scenery. Family gathering events and a fun place for skating and playing Handball. Gulf anyone?
  • This park has a huge lake, numerous trails that take you to the woods of Worcester, more children parks than I can ever hope to recall, another huge lake, a skate park, and it's so massive that I know there are parts of it I still haven't discovered. Almost anywhere you go in the woods leads to a great view
  • A Look To Greenhill Park In A Cloudy Day. Every time I go to Greenhill park it's more beautiful and more stuffs add it to it. You could rent the park for birthday parties, plus the sweet 16, QuinceaƱeara (sweet 15) wedding or like in my young son case his pics for his prom night they come out so beautiful and elegant. Greenhill park still doing some remodeling through the new Worcester Golf entrance but everything else it's already completed. They have the small farm with animals and new bathrooms right in front of kids play ground. This not a big zoo, they only have few small animals in the farm. This park also have the Vietnam War Veterans Memorial Stones. This place it's beautiful so I give it a 10.
  • 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!
