ParksPass 2017

The Needham Park and Recreation Commission would like to announce a new partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. The program is called Use Nature As Your Guide.

Residents may borrow the 2017 ParksPass to visit over 50 state parks. The ParksPass entitles the bearer to free parking for one vehicle at any of the facilities in the Massachusetts state parks system that charge a day-use parking fee.

The ParksPass can be reserved by calling the Needham Park and Recreation office at 781-455-7550, press 3.

Once you have reserved the Parks Pass you must come to the Park and Recreation office the business day before your trip to pick up the pass. ParksPasses are to be returned the business day after your reserved date of use.
