OPEN SPACE AND PARKS: Welcome to New Bedford where beautiful parks, beaches, boating, harbor tours, regattas, picnics, baseball, golf and one wonderful zoo- offer individuals and families a space to swim, boat and play. New Bedford was the mid 19th century’s pre-eminent whaling port and for a time “the richest city in the world.” As the city grew with the Whaling Industry, so grew its Parks and Beaches.
