Join public officials and City of Worcester Department of Public Works and Parks for a Ribbon Cutting at the recently renovated Hadwen Park.
The original 50 acres of Hadwen Park were donated to the City by Park Commissioner Obadiah B. Hadwen in 1902. Hadwen Park has many winding nature trails, as well as a long, quick-flowing river that runs from Leesville to Curtis Pond. This park is only two minutes from Webster Square, lying across Curtis Pond from Hope Cemetery.
In addition to the hiking trails and river, this park also features a baseball diamond, basketball court, picnic area and playground located in the north western section of the park.
The City of Worcester had two rope tow areas that operated in the 1960s. One was located at Green Hill Park within the Golf Course and the other was located at Hadwen Park. The rope tow at Hadwen Park was eventually converted into a pony lift before closing in the late 1980s. Today, the hill is used for sledding in the winter months.
