Shady, Fenced, Multi-Age Playground in Hopkinton
Just one quick turn off the main drag of a quiet neighborhood in Hopkinton, MA lies EMC Park – a hidden gem of parks! As you pull into the secluded, private parking lot, you see a couple of well maintained baseball fields, a skateboard park and, of course, the giant playground.

At first glance you will notice the cleanliness and upkeep of this fairly new park. The park caters to a wide array of age ranges, but conveniently separates the infant/toddler play area from the older play area with a fence. As the mother of a young toddler I found this very helpful. I could let my child play in a completely fenced in age-appropriate area without worry. On the infant/toddler side, my son and I enjoyed an intricate climber with slides, infant swings, sturdy park benches, and room to run on soft woodchips.
On the other side of the playground older children can enjoy a huge climber with over three slides, a number of swings, and monkey bars. The entire park is surrounded by a paved mini track where kids can ride bikes or parents can stroll babies.
The park area also includes large picnic tables covered by a canopy convenient for eating lunch at the park. If you’re looking for a park to spend a day at and are looking to entertain different age groups, this park is for you!
