The Green Hill Park Shelter is a historic shelter in Green Hill Park, the largest city park of Worcester, Massachusetts. It was designed by architect George H. Clemence, and built in 1910-11. The Oriental style shelter consists of sixteen fieldstone piers supporting a hip roof with curved eaves and ridge. At its south end is an enclosed area designed for use as a concession stand. The building is the most architecturally sophisticated park pavilion in the city.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
