There is something for everyone within our city parks

Whether you're a bird enthusiast or avid hiker, a mountain biker or canoeist, a snowmobiler or skater, mother bringing her children out for the afternoon or a child looking for places to play, you'll find the space you need to pursue what you love within Cambridge's park system. The city's parks not only give people a place to connect with one another, but also to nature. Those looking for solace find it walking along the scenic Rum River. They may surprise a deer or muskrat, and, if they have the time, will observe a variety of plant and animal species.

About Cambridge Parks

Just as the size of Cambridge's parks range greatly, so do the amenities offered at each. Expect to find paved trails, picnic tables, benches and playground equipment in most. Others have a tighter focus, facilitating specific activities such as basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis and skating. The city's extensive trail system connects Cambridge's many parks, offering residents the opportunity to get around via bicycle, inline skate, snowshoe, cross-country skis, snowmobile or their own two feet.

If you are interested in reserving any of our shelters in the parks please fill out an Event Use form.  Fees are $25.00 for Cambridge residents and $50.00 for non-residents. Any questions, call (763) 689-1800 or (763) 689-3211.
