Discover Our Parks and Playgrounds!


Cambridge Parks & Playgrounds Guide Cover

With summer upon us, the City's parks and playgrounds provide relief from heat, areas for exercise, and a place to see family and friends. The City of Cambridge Community Development Department is providing printed guidebooks to the City's 80+ parks and playgrounds. Guidebooks will be distributed at parks throughout the summer and are available to download. There is also an interactive map of parks and playgrounds highlighting signature parks in each neighborhood.

The guidebook provides information about the facilities and amenities of parks and playgrounds throughout Cambridge, including a range of spaces, from athletic fields to community gardens and dog runs.

We hope this guide will help you explore the beauty and nature that Cambridge has to offer – and discover new places along the way.
