Announcement regarding summer programming.

After much discussion and deliberation regarding the COVID-19 situation, the City has made the difficult decision to cancel all summer programs offered through the Fitchburg Recreation Department.  In addition, the splash pad located at McKee Farms Park will remain closed for the 2020 season.  The Parks & Rec Dept is truly disappointed that we will not be able to offer programming opportunities to the community this summer, however the safety of our participants and customers is of highest importance.  We look forward to serving you again in the future. Stay Well!

The Fitchburg Recreation Department strives to provide quality recreation program opportunities for all Fitchburg Residents.  The department has two full-time staff, various seasonal staff and program instructors, and countless volunteer coaches, that provide recreation opportunities.
