About the Commission

The Hopedale Park Commission is an elected (three year term) Board which governs all policies, rules, and regulations for Hopedale's active and passive recreational resources. It was chartered by our founding fathers at town meeting on March 6, 1899 with the vision of purchasing select town land for both "practical recreational development" and the "preservation of natural scenic beauty."   

The Commission has a rich history of enhancing and upholding these values - through Hopedale's prosperous Draper era and less prolific times thereafter - for the enjoyment and betterment of all our citizens. We hope you will find our web page to be an informative, useful resource, and we encourage your feedback and suggestions to help us sustain its evolution.

Thanks for stopping by!
