The purpose of the Framingham Parks and Recreation Department is to create recreation opportunities, preserve open space, manage public athletic fields and parks, and administer recreation programs and facilities for the varied population of Framingham.


Framingham Recreation provides approximately 300 formal programs yearly. These opportunities are made possible by a combination of user fees and public tax dollars. In addition, most programs are available to non-residents for an additional fee.


Policies for all recreation programs and facilities are determined by the Framingham Parks and Recreation Commission, which consists of a 5-member board appointed by the Mayor. Please visit the City Meeting Portal for meeting information.
