The City of Manchester is committed to protecting the health and safety of our community. If you choose to enjoy one of our city parks at this time, we ask that you and your children practice social distancing and other measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This includes washing your hands frequently and avoiding close contact with others.
Toward this end, we have CLOSED all playground equipment and hard courts (basketball, tennis, pickleball and soccer mini-pitch). In accordance with Governor Sununu's Emergency Order #17, we have also CLOSED the Derryfield Country Club golf course, disc golf courses, and Crystal Lake Beach through May 4. Open spaces and trails remain OPEN for exercise and fresh air. We ask that you use them responsibly.
The City of Manchester takes great pride in the near 2,000 acres of green space for its residents' uses including facilities, fields, trails and cemeteries with various amenities. Please browse through the site to take advantage of all that the Queen City has to offer. The site includes tons of information on recreational leagues and opportunities for kids and adults.
To provide quality recreational facilities and programs to serve the public and enhance the quality of life.
To be a progressive agency that meets the recreational and leisure needs of residents while complementing the city’s economic and redevelopment goals.
