Please help the City of Leominster update our Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) by participating in this important survey. A state-approved updated plan is necessary to qualify for state funding for purchasing and protecting open space and recreational facilities. This survey is being conducted to understand the needs and concerns of Leominster residents regarding the city's open space and recreation facilities.
The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, May 21st. PDF copies can be dropped off at our office at 40 Barrett Parkway during regular business hours, or mailed to us at 25 West St.
For more information, please see our Open Space page.
"In kind" donations are also being accepted!

This donation account will supplement the cost of construction and maintenance of the new Skatepark and Pump Track on Johnson Street. Leominster obtained a PARC grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City Council but is seeking additional funds. Our goal is to raise an additional $150,000.00 to supplement the cost of construction and maintenance of the new Skatepark and Pump Track. Your support would open us up to more designs and added features thus taking this project to the next level. Your donation to the City is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
Spohn Ranch is the designer of our new park. Check out this video for an example of one of their pump tracks in use:
The Recreation Department offers year round programs and services for our youth and adult residents. Over 100 programs are offered over the course of the year, serving over 3,000 participants. A brochure of programs offered is printed each spring and fall, and can be obtained online, at the Barrett Park Recreation Department Office, City Hall, and the Public Library. We also distribute the brochure to Leominster public and private schools to children in K-8.
The National Park Service (NPS) is partnering with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to encourage people to get outside and “Find Your Park” – whether it’s a state or national park!
To encourage everyone to enjoy our Massachusetts state parks and the 450,000 acres of public land that DCR manages, we've been given a free MassParks Pass for 2021!
The pass is available for people to sign out and borrow for the day from the Recreation office at 40 Barrett Parkway, during regular office hours.
The mission of the Recreation Department is to provide a wide variety of recreational programs and opportunities that are cost effective and that enhance the quality of life for Leominster youth and adult residents, while providing a safe and healthy community environment in which to live through the provisions of recreational programs and facilities.
The Recreation Department is also responsible for maintaining 103 acres of property of which 25 acres (nine sites) are mowed, seven playgrounds are maintained, and trash is picked up at 25 different sites throughout the year. The full-time year round staff consists of Recreation Director Judith Sumner, Administrative Assistant Lisa Comeau, and Maintenance Supervisor Roland LaPointe, Jr. There are over 140 seasonal staff.
The Department strives to identify and deliver, on a timely basis, programs and activities that the citizens of Leominster desire and/or request.
The Department commits itself to providing to the community, safe, clean facilities and equipment.
