Welcome To Childs Park

An oasis of serenity in the heart of the City of Northampton, MA

Bequeathed by Annie Childs in 1950, it is a place for quiet reflection and for savoring the smells, sounds, and sights of nature. Its 40 acres boast three large lawns and two natural ponds. An Italian-style garden house presides over the rose garden and the nearby formal garden, while the pine woods and giant ferns hide some wonderful surprises. The park is managed and maintained by the Childs Park Foundation.
