The benefits are endless…..Through many of our program brochures, literature, t-shirts, and other promotions & collateral you may have seen the logo, “Parks & Recreation…the Benefits are Endless…”. The Hampton Recreation & Parks Department has adopted this National Recreation and Parks program along with numerous other departments across the country in an effort to inform our respective communities of the endless benefits that parks and recreation provide. 

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.
