The City of Northampton's Recreation Department runs the programs and classes at the various city sites.
The Department of Public Works (DPW) is in charge of all maintenance of the facilities through the Parks and Cemetery Division of the DPW. Although the Recreation Department and the DPW Parks and Cemetery Division are two entirely separate departments, they work together to provide quality parks and recreation facilities for all to enjoy.
The Office of Planning and Sustainability also teams up with the Recreation Department to enhance and provide passive and active recreational opportunities in the City.
The recently renovated Pulaski Park is open for the general public to use and enjoy. Because it is a new park with new plantings and turf grass, the City will not be permitting organized usage, except for City sponsored organized events, until the Spring of 2017.
We’d like to give the Park time to take root and allow for a growth and maturing period.
We hope you are able to enjoy and relax in the new beautiful park!
The Northampton Recreation Department and the Office of Planning and Development have identified active and passive recreation opportunities in the city.
Usage requests must be submitted at least 30 days in advance of requested start date.
If you have any questions or would like to request field usage, please call the Recreation Department, or download the request form and send it in. Everyone's cooperation helps to ensure our city facilities are in the best shape possible, and all use is coordinated to avoid conflicts.
