Park Commission

Welcome to the Hopedale Parks Commission Website

Summer 2020 Tennis Program details available - see the tabs on the left side of this page.  Registration is on hold at this time.  Any checks dropped off at Town Hall will be held for now.  Hoping to reassess the program at the end of April. 


In light of the current health concerns, the Hopedale Park Commission has made the difficult decision of closing the Town Park bathrooms, basketball court, tennis courts, playgrounds and ball fields including Phillips Field and Draper Field.  We do not have the ability, manpower, nor funding to maintain safe facilities for all residents and visitors.  We will continue to monitor this situation and be prepared to amend this policy as soon as possible.

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!
