Recreation

The Capital Region offers you enough things to do and see that you could easily spend a lifetime here. Skiing, hiking, mountain biking, wildlife, canoeing, historic sites, walking tours, farms, orchards, golf, youth activities and four beautiful seasons are part of the many features that enhance the quality of life in the area. The Merrimack River offers abundant opportunities for swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Beaches and paths along the river provide a beautiful landscape for cyclists, skiers, joggers and dog walkers.

Concord’s public trail system includes 26 trails for exploring natural areas, and naturalists of all ages can enjoy hundreds of acres of protected wildlife and pocket-sized community parks. The city boasts 21 parks and seven community pools for residents to enjoy during warm summer months. Three community centers offer both residents and non-residents year-round recreational opportunities. Whether you're interested in a pick-up game of pickleball, after work sports leagues or learning a new skill or language, Concord has the facilities and classes to get you out of the house and into something fun! You can also rent these spaces out for your next event or meeting.
