“Hidden gem, great view!”
Review of Bancroft Tower

Bancroft Tower
Ranked #14 of 52 things to do in Worcester
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Having spent my youth in Worcester, during a recent visit, I remembered Bancroft Tower. My husband and I drove up there on a beautiful fall day. The tower itself is now closed to the public (to go up in it), but the tower itself and surrounding "park" is still beautiful. An easy drive off Park Ave....worth a detour to view the city (of Worcester) and enjoy the fall foliage. Also a couple large grinding stones/disks now serve as "tables". Saw some college students using these as study benches! This would be a good spot for a picnic also.
