Things To Do

Richmond Parks and Recreation offers a wide variety of facilities, programs, and events for the citizens of Richmond. However, our town offers a multitude of opportunities outside of parks that anyone can visit or experience. Community Recreation is working together with groups and organizations to offer the best experiences to the citizens of this town. We partner with many different organizations, but there are businesses in town that also offer opportunities for all people to play besides just kids- There are programs for adults, adults with disabilities, seniors, and veterans.
