Parks

Remington has TWO great town parks to enjoy!

The Original Town Park is centrally located in town near several convenience stores in case snacks or beverages are needed while you play! It is home to a large playground with multiple slides and swings for all ages and a great basketball court. It also has an open shelter with restrooms and picnic tables. The local Boy Scouts have a cabin located in the park as well. 

The Remington Community Park is located in the northwest part of town. With the recent addition of the SPLASH PAD, the Community Park is popular among local and out of town visitors! It has two shelters available for use or rent: an open shelter with restrooms and picnic tables and an enclosed shelter with restrooms and picnic tables.  This park also has both a baseball and softball field, which are home to the Tri-County Cavalier High School teams as well as the summer youth programs. You will also find newly resurfaced tennis courts on the west side of the park and a popular basketball court near the playground. There are walking trails that go throughout the woods behind the ball diamonds, with the expansion of The Parks Department expects to add a walking/biking trail in the very near future, however there is an existing nature trail in the wooded area behind the baseball diamonds. The Community Park also has several beautiful, green soccer fields equipped with nets. These fields are used by Remington’s popular youth soccer program in the fall. The park has two wonderful playgrounds, an enclosed infant/toddler playground and a larger playground for children of all ages. The large hill south of the softball diamond is perfect for winter sledding!

Help keep Remington GREEN with on-site RECYCLING at both locations!

Remington Town Park 
 
 Effective Immediately as of May 2017:

No pets are allowed inside the fenced baseball and softball diamond at the community park, with the exception of service animals.

Damage to the fields and failure to pick up animal waste despite signs posted in the parks has led the Park Board to this decision. In addition, the town of Remington has a tethered animal ordinance and allowing pets off leash, even inside the diamonds, violates this ordinance.

Many members of our board are pet owners who enjoy visiting the parks with our own pets, so trust us when we said this decision did not come lightly. However, the maintenance of our parks and safety of our patrons is our main priority. Additional signage will be posted in the coming weeks near the diamonds.

 

Thank you,

Remington Park Board
