  1. I continue to be blown away by the number of families in Elm Park on any given day. It is an oasis in the middle of one of New Englands largest cities and one of Worcesters greatest assets. It deserves its fair share of funding and voluntary support.

  2. What about the South Worcester Park over on Cambridge Street?

    It too is packed with young families on any given day, only unlike Elm Park – it’s poorer families and therefore certainly does NOT get its fair share of funding and voluntary support.

  3. The South Worcester Park doesn’t count? It’s one out of the whopping 2 places to play handball.

    It too deserves its fair share of funding and voluntary support – and at the very least a little recognition by the WhoaMag.

  4. Come on guys, Elm Park is a dump of the worst magnitude.
    They can put on all the “art exhibit” they want, schedule all the geriatric type concerts, but the place is a freaking dump.
    Will more funding make is pleasing to the eye. Heck no. Too many users. The City otta start charging admission.
    Maybe one of them cash rich colleges could adopt it.
    Heck, why not just give it to one of em so they can build more dorms and hire the locals as maintenance staff.

  5. On the subject of Elm Park, could you guys do a story on the old Fire Alarm & Telegraph building – including current bids, photographs of the interior, and details about why a consultant determined that it would cost at least a million dollars to bring the structure up to code?
