Welcome to Hanover Parks and Recreation’s website. This site will provide information to the residents of Hanover regarding Parks and Recreation programs, facilities, notices, and registrations. Occasionally, we will also have notifications from other Town of Hanover Departments and organizations. We are very excited about the opportunity to bring news instantly to the residents of Hanover. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 781-826-5000 ext 1057.  Thank you!



We gladly accept donations of toys, arts & craft supplies, sports equipment, etc.  Please call us if you're doing some spring cleaning and looking for a place to donate to!
