Are you new to Southborough? Still trying to get the lay of the land? Here’s where to find town buildings, facilities, fields, playgrounds, and trails.

Recreation fields and facilities

Athletic fields and facilities 

  • All indoor facilities require special reservations and are generally for town sports.
  • Town owned outdoor facilities are open to any residents for free recreational use (not classes) when they aren’t in use by a town team or Rec class. (They can also be reserved for classes/leagues through Town Rec):
    • Tennis Courts
    • Baseball and Softball Diamonds
    • Athletic Fields (for soccer, lacrosse, etc.)
    • Sand Volleyball Court
    • Picnic Pavilion (temporarily closed)
    • Skate Park (for rollerskating, rollerblading, and skateboards)
    • Outdoor Ice Rink (when conditions allow)
  • Town Rec has an updated facilities list, but it includes private properties used for some classes and not generally accessible to Southborough residents. (Plus, it’s not detailed). 
  • This older, detailed list may be more useful, as it doesn’t include those private properties, but some of the information is outdated/incorrect. Note clarifications below:
    • Harold E. Fay Memorial Field – the Picnic Pavilion, playground, and basketball courts are temporarily closed (though the baseball diamond and field are still open)
    • The Sand Volleyball Court is at Neary School, not Woodward
    • The Skate Park isn’t on the list, but is located in one of the Finn School Tennis Courts
    • The Outdoor Ice Rink is at Woodward School when conditions allow, not Neary
    • 9-11 Field isn’t owned by the Town – it is leased from Mass DCR with restrictions – access is restricted to use between April-October and by permit only.

Public playgrounds

  • Southborough Arts Center – 21 Highland Street
  • Town House/Pilgrim Church (aka the Tot Lot)17 Common Street (This little playground for tots is tucked back behind the parking lot)
  • Temporarily closed with plans to reopen fall 2017 – Harold E. Fay Memorial Field & Playground (aka Fayville Playground) Central Street

School playgrounds (These are closed to the public during school hours, but otherwise open to the community.)

Walking Trails – Here’s the official map from the Town. (Note: Sometimes maps are outdated as trails can change. Please follow signage instructions onsite.)

Find more details on Southborough Trails Committee’s website.
