Department of Parks, Recreation, and Maintenance

About Us

The City of Harrisburg is rich in parks, playgrounds and other green space.  The Trust for Public Lands indicates that 96% of the residents of Harrisburg live within a ten-minute walk of a park.  Harrisburg’s large and diverse parks and recreation system, surrounded by the Capital Area Greenbelt, provides something for everyone.  The Greenbelt is a 20-mile trail loop through and around Harrisburg.  It passes along the Susquehanna River through Riverfront Park, through wooded, residential and urban areas and scenic parks, including Reservoir Park and Wildwood Park.

The goal of the City of Harrisburg Department of Parks, Recreation and Facilities is to ensure that the city’s 25 parks and playgrounds and two swimming pools remain attractive and inviting for public use. The Department is also responsible for maintenance and upkeep for the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. City Government Center, the Public Safety Building and various other buildings and facilities in the city.
