Parks & Recreation

Our Mission

The Portsmouth Recreation Department is dedicated to promoting and supporting the health and well-being of all citizens by providing quality recreation and leisure programs. 

Our mission is to offer recreational experiences which integrate spirit, mind, and body, develop a sense of community and belonging, and enhance the overall quality of life in Portsmouth.

Parks, Rec & Open Space Community Survey

The Town of Portsmouth is currently drafting a Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan and is entering the public input phase of the planning process. In addition to upcoming public workshops, we are publishing a five-minute survey (link below) to hear your views on Portsmouth’s current recreational opportunities and facilities as well as your thoughts on future expansion of recreational resources here in Town.

We value your input!  Please click on the link below to complete this important survey.
