Thank you for the great review. We really enjoyed the fireworks too. We’ve worked really hard to provide great food at the concession stand. We will pass along you review to Michael, our chef. Thanks again. Come back soon! John O’Keefe, Town Manager

Nice quiet place in Manchester to walk around or if you want to just sit and enjoy the area, that's fine too.

This park is a regular stop for walking. It is dog friendly as long as they stay on the leash. Parking is easy and next to the walking area.

when we visit Manchester we do a picnic in the park with out dog. Nice clean facility, well maintained, an it has a dog park to allow our dog to run off some energy. Pick up lunch at Zoey's Deli and head over

Free rec park in the middle of Manchester. Baseball, soccer, lacrosse, skateboarding, and swimming - these are some of the activities available. As you can see, this is not a park to visit in the winter.

Hi Dr_JCO, Thanks for the great review! We are working on paddle tennis, which is a great sport for the winter. John O'Keefe Town Manager

Tennis, ball games, and great walking paths make this park a gem in Manchester. Beautiful well kept grounds and can walk from town.

An excellent playground for families, and a wonderful park overall. The town seemed to outdo itself putting this together.

The rec park is a favorite of young families for playing on the playground, swimming at the pool or youth league games. A great asset to Manchester.
