Green Hill Park is the largest park in Worcester and is one of the better spots for a run. The 500-acre park, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located on top of one of Worcester’s seven hills. The park has numerous paths and recreational facilities, and a public golf course at its northern end. It’s a good spot to do some hills.
We’ve mapped a 3.2 mile loop along the park’s main road, which has pedestrian path or sidewalk alongside, with a short stint on busy Belmont St., to end with a short but steep climb through a residential area back into the park. There are also numerous trails around the park, broadly labeled as the ‘East Side Trail’ and also that head toward Lake Quinsigamond and Bell Pond. They are marked, but can be a bit confusing. Surface conditions vary and there are hills! TRAIL MAP
