COVID-19 Update:

In response to Governor’s Hogan’s recent Order allowing a Stage One reopening of certain facilities, beginning Friday, May 15 at 5:00 PM, the City of Hagerstown is re-opening the following park amenities: all playgrounds, the Fairgrounds Park dog park, and restroom facilities at only City Park, Fairgrounds Park and Wheaton Park. The City of Hagerstown will re-open the dog park and playground equipment this weekend with the following stipulations:

• Signage will be placed at the playgrounds and dog park asking patrons to social distance.  We strongly suggest patrons wear masks. 
• We ask that patrons of our facilities bring and use personal hand sanitizer, continue good hygiene and continue to follow CDC guidelines on COVID-19. Hand washing is available in the open restrooms only. 
• Please do not gather in groups larger than ten (10). 
• Non-contact outdoor recreational activities such as walking, cycling, golfing, etc. are allowed provided social distancing is practiced and groups remain under 10 people.  

The City of Hagerstown believes that through these efforts, in compliance with the Health Department’s suggestions, we can keep these recreational areas as safe as possible.  If this reopening proves to be detrimental to maintaining public safety and health, the City will reevaluate opening these facilities. 

The Potterfield Pool will not open in May due to the pandemic restrictions. Opening the pool will occur when the State permits public pool openings and provides general guidance. Also, City staff and our pool management company need time to have the facility ready to comply with these yet to be determined guidelines.

The City of Hagerstown Parks & Recreation Division’s goal is to provide high quality recreation and leisure opportunities in safe, modern, and well-maintained parks and facilities to enhance the quality of life for all who live, work, and visit our City.

Although our parks can be visited year-round, they are "officially" closed November through March; during those months, no staff will be on site in the evenings or on weekends, and the restrooms are not open.
We welcome your suggestions. If there is anything you would like to see added to our web site, please don't hesitate to contact us.


& Amenities

One of Hagerstown’s most valuable resources is its network of parks and recreational facilities. From quiet and historic City Park, to the active recreational opportunities at Fairgrounds Park, to the family-oriented amenities at Pangborn Park and Hager Park, residents have a range of facilities to enjoy. Join the fun watching the Hagerstown Suns play at Municipal Stadium, play a round of golf at Hagerstown Greens, participate in one of the many special events at our parks or ride on the City’s expanding network of bicycle routes.
