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.

Salem Movies in the Park

The City of Salem presents a new season of “Movies in the Park.” Spend time with family and friends and join us under the stars to watch free, family-friendly movies on a 24-foot screen in the Riverfront Park Amphitheater.
