Ellis Garden Playground – Norwood, MA

Last Visited: Thursday; September 29, 2012

Ellis Playground is a nice small park located right off Route 1 in the middle of the Automile in Norwood, MA.  However, because you can’t see it from the main road, it is a little hard to find.  Ellis park is basically a soccer field, a few trails in the woods and a great family-friendly playground.  It’s a great place to spend a few hours on a nice day with a soccer ball, frisbee or something else to enjoy playing outside.
