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.
There aren’t any facilities here beyond the playground and soccer field. There are several businesses nearby in Norwood Center and on Route 1 where you should be able to find what you need without going too far.
Directions: This park is located off Route 1 in Norwood, MA. Coming south on Route 1 from I-95/Route 128 (exit 15b) take a right on Ellis Avenue after you pass the light for University Avenue. Once you get on Ellis Ave take your next left onto Codman Road and there will be a small parking area on your right. If you’re using a GPS device the following address on Codman Road should get you near to the parking space:
47 Codman St.
