Even during the bitter cold days in Derry it's exciting to know that we have numerous options to keep us warm and toasty inside and plentiful options to celebrate the beauty that is outside. Below is a listing of upcoming events, programs, and activities to keep in mind this winter! This list may change over the course of the winter so please check back with the Derry Parks & Recreation Department or the other agencies listed below as options and information may change.

From us to you, we wish you a very Happy New Year!
Enjoy the outdoors:
Enjoy the beauty that is New England not just in the summer and fall but rather all year long.

If you are looking for a place to enjoy the winter weather you can also visit Hood Pond on Rollins Street, Gallien's Town Beach on Pond Road, and Alexander-Carr Park on Pierce Ave. All in Derry, these three park locations offer winter options to enjoy.

Last but not least, take advantage of the trails and conservation land found throughout the community.
