Fields Grove is along Salmon Brook and was named after the landowner who allowed public access to the area through his property. It became a dedicated city park in 1924. During the 1930s, the American Red Cross provided swimming lessons to kids there, and, up until the 1960s, many Nashuans would come to Fields Grove to swim and enjoy the public beach area during the summer (swimming is not currently permitted). Children and adults enjoy using the basketball and tennis courts, and sledding down the steep hill there during winter. The playground is utilized by families year-round, and from sunrise to sunset, people walk their dogs through the park, or sit on a bench and watch the ducks swim in Salmon Brook.
