This 210-acre city park provides both passive and active recreational activities, located immediately south of I-89 and east of Dorset Street. Dorset Park is divided into two segments, the 70-acre City Park and the 140-acre Country Park.

The Country Park remains undeveloped and is used for cross country skiing, nature walks, and the community gardens. There are several pleasant hikes through the woods and fields. There are nice views through the fields, and a good view at the top. This site contains two buildings and several scenic areas.

The City Park currently has two soccer fields (one regulation) and two youth baseball fields, a picnic pavilion with tables, restrooms, the Rotary Bandshell, inline skating area, open field space, indoor ice arena (privately operated), and parking.
