A milestone in Worcester mess-ups. The bridges use to be flat and easy to cross. Well it was decided by the powers that be that there should be paddle boats for people to rent... so we'll have to raise the bridges. After too long and too much money they were done. Then someone said; "The bridges are not wheelchair accsessible!" and of course the paddle boats never arrived.

My aunt had a wedding and we went on that bridge for a wedding photo afterwards. I deeply loved that park. Especially being excited to just cross through that bridge. I loved crossing that bridge because it was so steep.

Remembering circa 1954 going to Elm Park to fish as a kid (about 10 years old). The park had an old man caretaker he was probably past 60 years of age and would chase us kids out of the park for trying to fish. He realy didn't want to catch us as he would yell from a long ways off giving us time to get out fishing gear and run off. Now wondering what he would do if he caught us, would it be going to "JAIL". That old man chased us twice then we stopped fishing at the park as we got older and found other places to fish.

I've always loved this park and visited it more times than I can count. My fondest memory however is one of joyful pain! At one of the benches along Park Ave. is where I felt the first twinges of labor pains that lead to the birth of my daughter.

When I was a small boy my mother used to take me to this Elm Park. I loved the little Islands and turtles which abounded in the water. Now I live in Michigan surrounded by the Great Lakes but little qaint Elm Park will always be special to me.
