Recreational and Leisure Opportunities

Recreational and Leisure Opportunities

New Hampton has an outstanding parks system providing ever-expanding recreational opportunities for its residents. The Parks and Recreation Department maintains over 50 acres in the six city parks and provides recreational programs throughout the year.

One of the most widely used parks is Mikkelson Park that includes multiple playgrounds, baseball fields, a swimming pool with a state-of-the-art water slide, two tennis courts, a volleyball area, a disc golf course, horseshoes and much more. Other park facilities include a nature trail, pond with fishing piers, native grass and wildflower area, winter ice rink and more playground areas, basketball courts, softball fields, sand volleyball courts and open play spaces.

The Parks Department also maintains a community center that is utilized by a variety of community and business organizations for meetings and special events.

For golfers, there are many golf courses within minutes of New Hampton. Bikers will enjoy miles of bike trails; and hunters will feast in the deer and pheasant hunting.

Chickasaw Wellness Center

Another excellent recreational opportunity is the new $2.3 million Chickasaw Wellness Center. Features include basketball and volleyball courts, a racquetball court, a rubberized running or walking track, training and exercise equipment, strength training area, batting and golf cages and steam rooms for both men and women. There is also a supervised children's area for those too young to participate.
