Message from the Director

Dear Hartford Residents:

We have something for everyone and are committed to enhancing the quality of life in the Town through our many parks and recreation programs. 

The Hartford Parks & Recreation Department is extremely proud to be one of the most comprehensive social service providers in town, offering a variety of diverse programs and places for all ages of our population.  A sense of place for all, parks and recreation provides connections for our community through nature, social events and leisure activities.   Our team of dedicated volunteers and professional staff take great pride in the programs and services offered.  We are committed to insuring that everyone has an opportunity to experience recreational activities and enjoy our great parks.  

We know that time is precious as you juggle work, family and other responsibilities. It can be easy to forget about recreating for yourself and that in turn can sometimes impact your overall well being. Our Fall and Winter Program Guide provides a little taste of what is coming this season.  We hope you take advantage of what we have planned for you.  Additional programs and activities can be found at and on our Facebook pages
