Long Description:
In Norwood, near the corner of Washington Street and Guild Street, is a small green that is known as the Aaron Guild Park. This park is bounded by Washington Street, Guild Street and Central Street, and has a parking lot along Central Street, by the post office.

This triangular green has a sidewalk through it and several trees. At various places are monuments and benches. The sign for the park also has on it "Women's Community Committee." The south corner of the park has a stone statue dedicated to all the Marines in Norfolk County, which has the likeness of a soldier. There is a black bench that is dedicated to Korean soldiers. Near the parking lot, there is a tall evergreen tree with lights that is lit in December.

It's a small park, but still could serve as a mini oasis from the urban surroundings.
