  • Lowell has made a remarkable urban park focused on its place as America's textile center for more than a century. It is worth several visits.

  • First time visiting this great park last year. Unique park since structures are spread out throughout the city. Came back last month and thought the renovations looked good. Kids will love the summer concerts even more now.
  • The area is being restored at the moment. The sign said its expected to open in November. What work has been done looks very good
