WELCOME TO THE WINCHENDON COMMUNITY PARK
Thank you to everyone who made the amphitheater grand opening a success. It was amazing to see so many people there enjoying this gem right in the heart of Winchendon.
Join Cindy Carvill in our Naure's Notebook adventure.
We are recruiting volunteers to join our Citizen Science Program called Nature’s Notebook and help us collect information on plant and animal species at the Winchendon Community Park. No prior experience or long-term commitment required! We welcome amateur naturalists and botanists as well as seasoned professionals. Learn more about phenology and help us record data for scientific research.
