About the Recreation Department:

 The Fitchburg Parks and Recreation Department is as diverse as the community it serves. As in so many other aspects of life, the key to running a successful department is having the ability to strike a balance between young and old, tradition and innovation, and the needs of one verses the needs of many.  The Fitchburg Parks and Recreation Department will provide essential services, facilities, and programs necessary for the positive development and well-being of the community through the provision of parks, greenways, trails and recreation facilities while working in cooperation with other service providers in the community, in order to maximize all available resources.  Our employees continually strive to honor the past, while embracing the challenges of the future, and to serve an entire community while maintaining meaningful connections with individual participants.
