Facility Guide Cover PhotoThere are 12 main parks in Harrisonburg City along with several other properties that are maintained by the Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation.  These parks offer several natural surface trails, athletic fields, picnic shelters, playgrounds, basketball courts, and many other amenities.

View our Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation Facilities Guide [3KB]PDF for more information about our recreation facilities.


Update - June 15, 2020: The City’s Reopening Committee is currently discussing a timeline for reopening City facilities.  Currently only Westover Pool is open for lap swimming only, and Heritage Oaks Golf Course is open for scheduled tee times. Activities at these facilities will return when we know we can safely do so, with the health and wellness of our visitors and staff being our priority. We hope to begin reopening some facilities in the coming days with restrictions in place at first.

Open green spaces and walking trails where patrons can practice safe social distancing methods are still open at this time.  Visit the City's Coronavirus COVID-19 page for additional information on the City's approach.
