Framingham Parks & Recreation COVID-19 Updates

As the response to COVID-19 continues, please know that Framingham Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Department is taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of residents and employees. We intend to continue offering recreational activities while following the state guidelines, guidance from our Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health. The well-being of all our residents and employees is of utmost importance. 

Recent reductions in part-time and seasonal staff continue to slow down our Department's ability to reopen facilities and perform routine maintenance. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

Special Message to Parks Users: While parks and trails remain open for passive recreation, please be respectful of others, dispose of pet waste and litter appropriately (if waste receptacles are full, please take it with you), practice social distancing (at least 6 feet), cover coughs and sneezes, wear a mask or facecloth when entering any buildings or when social distancing is not possible, and stay home if ill. The more people follow the recommended preventative guidelines, the faster we can return to our "normal" activities.
