Recreation can increase community pride, build self esteem & family unity, create memories, and offer social interaction. Numerous programs offered by the Hampton Recreation & Parks Department provide proof of those benefits. Whether it’s walking, participating in youth sport programs, adult basketball and softball leagues, enjoying our after school program or summer day and sport camps, or having fun with senior activities, recreation truly provides outstanding benefits.
Parks can help protect the environment, increase property value, and help make you healthier, happier, and less stressed. Citizens of Hampton need look no further than Tuck Field, Eaton Park, or Lew Brown Park as perfect examples of how parks can be beneficial. For example, Lew Brown Park was used as a dump site for years and is now a site that provides for walking, flag football, skateboarding, soccer, volleyball, inline skating, and hockey. Property values adjacent to the park have increased along with a remarkable improvement in the environment.
The staff of the Hampton Recreation & Parks Department encourages all Hampton citizens to take advantage of our parks and participate in our recreation programs. As you can see… the benefits are endless.
The Hampton Recreation and Parks Department is committed to being a leader in providing qualtiy, innovative and progressive recretational opportunites that respond to the needs of our residents. These essential services encourage positive development and enhance the well behing of the community.
