Walking in City Park is as much a part of a Hagerstown summer as rooting for the Suns at Municipal Stadium or enjoying a cool dip in Potterfield Pool. Both visitors and longtime residents can roam the popular 50-acre park along several measured courses.
A three-sided kiosk located across the bridge at the Virginia Avenue entrance to the park provides a color-coded map of the trails as well as information about each one. There are a series of markers, known as wayside exhibits, that provide information about sites within the park including the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, the Mansion House and the Jonathan Hager House and Museum.
You may download a walking trail map which contains descriptions and background information on trail system. Please note that you may walk your dogs through City Park, as long as you do so in accordance with the requirements of the Parks & Recreation Division's Dog Policy.
