Elm Park

Elm Park, Worcester, Massachusetts was purchased in 1854

using public funds. The park is recognized as one of the first

purchases of land for a public park in the U.S. and is listed on

the National Register of Historic Places. The park contains

designs by the Olmsted firm dating back to 1909 through

the 1940s, during the period of work by John Charles Olmsted,

Fredrick Law Olmsted Jr., and other members of the

Olmsted Brothers firm.
