Who Maintains Institute Park?

While the City of Worcester’s Parks, Recreation, and Cemetery Division technically maintains Institute Park, several other groups play a large role in the preservation of Institute Park.

Advocates for Institute Park

As the neighboring college on three sides, Worcester Polytechnic Institute has a large say due to proximity and financial contributions. They provide a lot of the funding used to maintain the park. Additionally, Friends of Institute Park and Park Spirit Worcester act as advocates for Institute Park improvements on the behalf of residents. If you wish to get involved, you can visit their websites at http://institutepark.org/index.php and https://www.parkspirit.org/, respectively.
