Sunday In My City - Green Hill Park

This week for Sunday In My City we visited one of the many parks in Worcester, MA, Green Hill Park...



Worcester is sometimes referred to as the City of Seven Hills...my mother-in-law could name them all, but to me it seems like there's a heck of a lot more hills here! Anyway, Green Hill Park sits atop one of the official seven, Belmont Hill.

Green Hill has a golf course, playground, basketball/tennis courts, lots of grassy areas for picnicking, beautiful views and a small farm.

I had only driven by this once before and it had seemed rather shabby. I was quite pleased to see that it was nicely maintained, and the handful of animals seemed happy and healthy.


First we visited the sheep....

Then the pigs...


Then my favorite, the miniature horse

(she was very friendly...came trotting right over to us!)

The llamas (I thought they were alpaca, but they're not!) kept their distance...

Which is a good thing...llamas always seem to spit at me.

The goats were friendly...


On our way out we saw a kite flying in the sky...next time we're bringing ours! Being on top of a big hill, it's usually pretty breezy here.

The last time I had visited here, it was shortly after the park's Vietnam Memorial was dedicated. We didn't get a chance to get out and walk around this time - my little one was tired after our two-mile bike ride earlier today! But it is a lovely memorial....

Maybe we'll come back next Sunday!

We've stayed a couple of times on a farm that has a small herd of miniature horses, they are very cute.

I've never been around llamas, I didn't know they were spitters.
