Fabulously well maintained arboretum-style park. Most trees labeled with there name. Often the site of special events like the Mem Day Weekend Art Show, Westerly Pops and Fireworks, Shakespeare in the Park, and more. Very nice to visit and walk around even if no event!

This park is only about a couple of blocks square, but there is so much contrast in this small place that it feels much bigger. Beds of lilies and hydrangea move into beautiful old trees, then there's a fountain. It is all beautifully laid out....More

With all the activities planned the park is an entertaining venue. Still, in quiet times this historically designed park offers sun, shade, peace and quiet.

What a pleasant surprise. Very pretty compact park with water, a gazebo, and pretty gardens. In the middle of downtown Westerly so easy to find and access. Bring a picnic though. Not a lot of food options in easy walking distance.
