Parks & Activities

​Find fun things to do both indoors and outdoors. Public parks are a source of fun, beauty, and economic benefits. They create opportunities for you to relax, appreciate nature, improve your health, and interact with your community. Salem’s reservable facilities provide the perfect option for a company picnic, group outing, family reunion, or other special event. Many recreational activities such as softball leagues, kickball leagues, and sports tournaments take place in Salem’s park system.

Participate in the Riverfront Park Master Plan Update

An update to the Riverfront Park Master Plan is underway. To help guide continued improvements to this popular park, we are requesting community involvement in the process.
