People need parks - and parks need people! The support and help given by community members are integral to preserving, maintaining, and developing Sweet Home's parks and recreation activities.
The Sweet Home Recreation and Park Department provides over 9,000 Sweet Home residents and visitors with essential opportunities to maintain healthy, active lifestyles. We maintain more than 7 neighborhood parks and playgrounds, and over 87 acres of recreational and open spaces. All of these green spaces and facilities add immensely to the quality of life of all Sweet Home residents and visitors.
We also host numerous free summer outdoor activities for Sweet Home's youth. Free summer outdoor activities allow youth that may not be otherwise exposed to the wonders of nature to enjoy all the fun that the great outdoors can provide.
We are dedicated to maintaining and improving these resources and activities, but we need your help. Each year we are faced with limited funding that affects our ability to provide the essential programs Sweet Home residents and visitors rely on. Please enjoy participating in the Sweetheart race and known that your race contributions make a difference in the Sweet Home community. Thank you for support!
