Programming & Events

The Hyde Park Recreation Department offers year round programming and events for all Hyde Park residents. From our iconic Music in the Parks series to our senior activities club and summer camps, our town recreation department provides opportunities for cultural enrichment, as well as a multitude of passive and active leisure experiences.

Recreation

In addition, to the wealth of programming provided by the Town of Hyde Park, we are the home of beautiful state and national parks, and many private swimming, tennis, and boating clubs. Because volunteering is part of our community's vibe, there are a variety of clubs and organizations that add dimension to our active recreation options.
