|Please see our new: Parks/Playground Master List
Newton is a unique City where there are many pocket parks throughout the City. These Parks have both passive and active recreation areas. Active Recreation areas would include sports activities of all types passive areas could include a small neighborhood area to sit and enjoy the outdoors to walking trails on the outside of the active sports facilities.
The listing of parks here is presented by each voting ward.
Should your event be outside the "normal" use of a public park i.e. hosting a carnival as a fund raising event for the local P.T.O. then a special permit request would be the application that is needed.
If your wish is for a picnic for your family or company then you will need to submit a picnic permit application.
