Cellucci Skate & Splash Park
Opened in 2008, Cellucci Skate & Splash Park has been specifically designed with features for every age group. Children & adults alike will enjoy the playground, splash pad, sculpted in-ground skate park, bocce court, gazebo pavilion and picnic areas. The Park is also located just 500 feet from the Assabet River Rail Trail (ARRT) where it crosses the intersection of South Street and Broad Street.
The pavilion is home to the Arts in the Park series, a free Thursday lunchtime entertainment series which includes everything from puppeteers and jugglers to musical entertainment. Please click on the link below to see the flyer to see the wide range of entertainment that is offered.
The splash pad operates daily throughout the summer from 9 A.M. to 7 P.M. A unique aspect of the splash pad is that it features a special reclamation water filtration system that recycles the water being used, running the water through an underground filtration system. This water conservation measure will allow the splash pad to operate in times of drought. Please be aware that the splash pad is equipped with a chemical monitoring system that will automatically shut-off the splash pad if the chemical levels fall outside standard parameters. Such an event could be caused by many factors including but not limited to: inclement weather, power failures, high volume usage, etc...
The 2.8 acre park was the culmination of more than five years of work and cost over $1.4 million dollars. Funding for the park was provided from the Department of Housing and Community Development in the form a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the Town of Hudson and private donations.
The park was named after Argeo Cellucci Jr., Chairman of the Hudson Economic Development Commission for 39 years. Cellucci is credited with luring Intel as well as hundreds of other businesses and more than 10,000 jobs to the Town of Hudson.
