Parks & Recreation

Visiting Parks and Outdoor Recreational Facilities

In Concord, one is never far from an open green space for active play or just relaxing. 

Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy. Concord’s extensive park system provides endless opportunities for people to get fresh air, exercise, enjoy nature and relieve some stress.  Each of Concord's parks has a distinctive character all its own; and with 14 Pickleball courts, 13 tennis courts, a pool open for lap swim, plenty of family play space, walking tracks and miles of scenic hiking trails, there is something for everyone. 

You and your family can make the most of your outdoor experiences by staying safe and doing everything you can to slow the spread.
