Armbrust Hill Town Park is behind the Medical Center, accessed from Atlantic Avenue. In addition to several short trails, the park also houses the Owen Webster Memorial Playground which has swings, a slide and Jungle Gym. The late Betty Roberts did most of the landscaping of the park and donated it to the Town. Trails lead you through a natural amphitheater, or up to Trolley Cliff for a magnificent view of the harbor.
