    Mission Statement:

    Durham Parks and Recreation, its Director and Committee, strive to offer a wide range of quality programs, parks, and facilities that encourage all community members to participate in healthy, fun, and enriching activities. Together, they celebrate the essential role public recreation plays in fostering a cohesive and vibrant community.

    Thank you for visiting the Durham Parks & Recreation Department website!  The Parks & Recreation Building is located in Durham at the intersection of Dover Rd and Newmarket Rd. The brick building sits on the corner of the intersection, across from Holiday Inn on Rt. 108, and on the same side of the road as the Town Hall.

    Town residents of all ages, abilities, and interests need not look beyond our borders to experience a broad range of outdoor and indoor recreational activities which enhance a healthy lifestyle and build a sense of community. Residents can count on seasonal celebrations that bring our community together and provide shared time in our useful parks we are all  proud of. We also offer health and wellness classes that include Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, Zumba, Bootcamp, Yoga, Strength & Stretch and much more. The majority of these classes are provided for an eight week session, however, participants are welcome to join in at any time for a pro-rated fee.

    Residents are welcome to volunteer and/or join our Recreation Committee. Please direct all questions to Parks & Recreation by calling (603) 817-4074, or email us at recreation [at] ci [dot] durham [dot] nh [dot] us...
