Town Parks

The Town of Rotterdam has eight (8) town-owned neighborhood parks situated throughout the Town. The parks system includes a variety of play equipment for younger children to enjoy under adult supervision. Each park has a play structure along with new picnic tables and benches. Many of our parks are also equipped with full or half court basketball courts, tennis courts and volleyball courts for youth and adult use. In addition to the playground equipment and facilities, some of our parks are equipped with playing fields which are "home" to Rotterdam Little League baseball, Carman Little League baseball, Rotterdam Babe Ruth and Rotterdam Girls Softball and the Rotterdam Challenger League.
