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

Recreation fields and facilities

Athletic fields and facilitiesHere’s the official list from the Southborough Recreation Department.
The indoor facilities require special reservations and are generally for town sports. But the 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. These include:

  • Tennis Courts
  • Baseball Diamonds
  • Athletic Fields (for soccer, lacrosse, etc.)
  • Sand Volleyball Court (Note: this is actually at Neary School, not Woodward)
  • Picnic Pavilion
  • Skate Park (Note: this isn’t on the list, but is located in one of the Finn School Tennis Courts)
  • Outdoor Ice Rink (Note: this is actually at Woodward School in the winter, not Neary)

[Note: Since the 911 turf field is rented from the state, access is restricted to use between April-October and by permit only.]

Public playgrounds

  • Harold E. Fay Memorial Field & Playground (aka Fayville Playground) Central Street
  • 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)

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