Parks and Playgrounds

The City of Quincy possesses 52 municipal park locations, 10 municipal beach areas and numerous open space areas. There are currently 35 basketball courts, 23 tennis courts, 27 little league/softball fields, eight regulation baseball diamonds, five soccer / lacrosse fields, three football fields, a skateboard park and an in-line skate-facility. Many of our park areas are multi-use facilities, meaning that during different seasons, they are used for different activities.

The city also offers 18 "tot-lot" or children's playgrounds. There are also 10 other locations with playground equipment for young children to use.

Eleven of the City's park locations are "passive" parks without recreational facilities. These parks can be used for walking, sitting or just plain relaxing. There are also two family picnic facilities offered by the city during the spring and summer months.
