Trips, Tours, & More!

Come join our NEW Backyard Adventures it's a new series of activities that help you get to know your neighborhood and surrounding communities.  Here's how it works: we coordinate and/or research an activity with a local business with all the information we think you'll need and you show up!  It's just that simple!  Here's what we have so far.....
Trips and Tours for 2018 and beyond
The Derry Parks & Recreation Department coordinates trips throughout New England and beyond for Derry residents and non-Derry residents alike. Approximately 7 local trips  and an additional 6 national and global tours occur annually through the Derry Parks and Recreation Department. These trips are different than the Backyard Tours and Adventures as they typically include transportation, entertainment, and a meal within one registration fee unless otherwise noted. Coach buses are used for all local transportation unless otherwise noted. Door to door service is included for Derry Residents with all global trips and tours through Collette unless otherwise noted.
