Today's Poll

Why do you primarily visit the Canal District neighborhood in Worcester?
Poll Description

The Canal District has gone through a number of transitions over the last few decades. The neighborhood once had one of the higher poverty rates in Worcester when businesses like the Dive Bar moved in, followed by a number of locally owned restaurants and bars. Just over 10 years ago, the retail shop Crompton Collective started attracting a different crowd of people looking for unique goods. This eclectic mix of small businesses and a walkable, urban vibe attracted the owners of Pawtucket Red Sox to move their baseball team in 2021 to the newly developed $160-million Polar Park, the most expensive minor league baseball stadium ever built. That development is being followed by a wave of market-rate multifamily housing projects, which are at varying degrees of development.
