  • WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4 @ 2:00pm - 

    The waterfronts at all 3 City Beaches are closed. 

    The waterfront at Waushakum Beach AND Saxonville Beach are CLOSED due to a MA Dept. of Public Health advisory for cyanobacteria (blue-green algae).  This algae has been confirmed in Waushakum Lake, Lake Cochituate – North Pond, Lake Cochituate – Middle Pond, and Lake Cochituate – South Pond.

    These bodies of water are UNSAFE FOR PEOPLE AND PETS!  Do not swim.  Do not swallow water.  Keep animals away.  Rinse off after contact with water.  Additional information can be found at 
    The waterfront at Learned Pond is closed due to an elevated E.coli bacteria count.  The water will be re-testes and the waterfront will open once the bacteria is back within acceptable limits. 

    The beaches will be open for sunbathing, while staff is present, while the waterfronts are closed.

    Water testing results can be found on the City of Framingham Board of Health website at

Welcome to Framingham Parks & Recreation

Registration Information:

Your Parks & Recreation Department is committed to offering our community safe recreation options during these ever-changing times. In doing so, flexibility is essential, and many of our programs will be offered in-person, with the availability to go virtual if needed.
Our programming line-up will be constantly changing and we will be adding programs as they become available. Registration will be held by a *rolling enrollment* as opposed to our typical *registration day*. We will continue to announce new programs on our website and social media pages. However, please check our website regularly for a full listing.

If you would like to be notified by email when our programs will be available, registration dates, etc. please choose "opt in" for "General Announcements" within your account profile. 
If you need assistance, please give us a call @ 508-532-5960.  


Welcome to the Framingham Parks & Recreation activity registration system and website. This program allows you to streamline the registration process, eliminate repeat registration forms, give the ability to use credit & debit cards, and give you the freedom to register for programs after normal business hours, from home, or on the go! 
We encourage you to Create an Account with all your household information as soon as possible. By doing this, you’ll be able to provide us with emergency contacts, allergy/medical information & more so we can serve you better.  Please be sure to enter your cell phone number with the carrier so that we can text you with any last minute changes.  Please add all of your household members to the account.  Your new household account will provide you with registration history, financial history and much more.
All of our programs will be offered in real time and 100% of our spaces are available for all programs (unless otherwise noted) on a first-come, first-served basis.  Therefore, programs will only be kept in your ‘shopping cart’ for a maximum of 15 minutes before they are released for someone else to take advantage of. 
Please remember that all recreation programs are non-refundable, class sizes are limited and based on a first-come, first-served basis, so register early!

All non-residents are subject to an additional non-resident fee and may have different registration dates.

All services and fees are subject to change.

If you do not have access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone you may register for our programs at our office using our public kiosk.  A staff member is always available, should you need assistance.  

When you’re ready to fill out a registration form for activities be sure to review the How to Register for an Activity page. 

If you have any questions, please call our office at 508-532-5960.
