Throughout Hancock County, surrounded by farm fields, 10 villages and cities of Findlay and Fostoria are located. Each community has its own unique location and within each community is a park or system of parks with special features to provide recreational opportunities to residents and visitors. Park visitors are encouraged to visit and support these community parks, and volunteers are always needed to help with maintenance and beautification projects. HPD is committed to supporting these community parks with future improvements through their annual Community Parks Improvements Grant Program.
Each community park houses a variety of reservable facilities including outdoor and enclosed. A “Community Parks Rental Facilities Chart” with facility and contact information can be downloaded below.
