It’s really great that New Bedford has this amazing park in the middle of the city. It’s really shady, and the walking paths are wide enough to give people space while walking. The goose poop is gross, and some people don’t clean up after their dogs. That’s the reason for my 4 stars.

Great, easy run (I’m a super beginner, out of shape for 2 years). Some scenic points: a brook, pond, horses. Watch out for the geese though. Today was snowy, and I only had to be cautious of one ice patch. Great path, definitely go!

First to Review

This is one of the many very nice parks in New Bedford. The walk is around the perimeter of the park, pond, zoo, ball fields, and woods. Very busy traffic on the roads adjacent to the park. Accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.
