Downtown/Elm Park Reviews

Elm Park is in the heart of Worcester in Massachusetts. It is a big park if not the biggest and cleanest. It contains children's playground, nature and beautiful scenery. It has a creek and where birds, ducks and other creatures come to bask. It shows nature at work especially when a beautiful little bridge crosses over the running stream. The bridge makes it appear as if it was out of town with the real nature at play. The green nature of the land makes it a real place to be. I will suggest that the games for children be added. A lot is missing from what a good park can carry.

Most of the housing in the area is the classic Worcester 3 decker apartments. Again, it is typically rented to college students so most of the buildings are not updated or renovated, but they are all functioning. Rent is relatively low.
Nothing about Worcester really makes you want to live here, but there are plenty of things that make you appreciate it's strange beauty.
