An abundance of parks and recreation opportunities...

Nearly every New Hope home is within a quarter-mile of a city park. New Hope maintains 20 city parks with a total of more than 200 acres of green space. The crown jewel of the city’s park system is the 65-acre Northwood Park on Boone and 38th avenues.

More than 30,000 people participate each year in about 120 programs for all ages offered through the New Hope Parks and Recreation Department.

The city also operates the New Hope Village Golf Course, New Hope Ice Arena, and Milton C. Honsey Outdoor Pool. For details, view our Recreation Facilities page.
