Parks and Recreation
Welcome to the Lowell Parks and Recreation Department web site. Our mission is to provide safe, fun, and affordable programs to our participants, targeting the residents of the City of Lowell.
Our Parks Division strives to provide safe, healthy, well maintained parks and facilities for the residents of Lowell to utilize throughout the City. Our 75+ Parks are maintained year round and used on a regular basis by Sports Organizations and Clubs. In addition, our parks are open for public use during daylight hours.
Our Recreation Division provides the most diverse programming possible, focusing on the opportunities that we feel the participants might otherwise miss out on. These activities range in Sports, Arts & Crafts, Swimming, and Festival settings that we provide through our in house staff.
We also utilize many volunteers from the local schools and organizations to assist in providing these Recreational Activities. For more information on Volunteering contact the Recreation Division at the provided number.
During the spring season, the Park Division prepares all ball fields–baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse–for opening days in April. The Parks Division works with youth and adult sports organizations to schedule their seasonal activities.
The Cawley Stadium complex and the surrounding fields are opened and maintained seven days a week beginning in April and continuing through November.
Spring is also the time when all monuments, ornamental parks, islands, circles and squares and flag poles are prepared in anticipation of Memorial Weekend and when all parks and playgrounds, tennis, baseball and all specialty areas are opened for the season. This work kicks into high gear in late April and May as preparations for opening days at ballparks and soccer fields winds down.
The division also coordinates the efforts of various schools who undertake cleanup and beautification projects.
