All Berlin Parks will re-open after noon on Friday, June 12, 2020. For details, click here.


The Berlin Parks Commission is organized under the Town Charter and operates as a volunteer committee made up of citizens of the Town.  The Parks Commission actively seeks partnerships with a variety of sponsors and has been successful in cultivating relationships with corporate, civic and private entities to assist with park-related projects. The Town also has funding in its annual budget for Parks related maintenance and other necessities. Meetings are held monthly, on the first Tuesday at 5:30 PM in the 2nd floor Conference Room, Town Hall.

The Parks Commission sponsors an annual Clean-Up Day during Take Pride in Berlin Week. In 2009 the Parks Commission, through a grant from Program Open Space, contracted with Vista Design, Inc. to create a Comprehensive Parks & Recreation Plan. Please click here for details of the plan.

The Town of Berlin offers residents and visitors four parks with a variety of natural, recreational and play features.  See below for information about each park.

If you are interested in reserving the pavilion at either Stephen Decatur or Henry Parks, please click here for a reservation form, or call 410-641-2770.


Clean-Up Day for April 2020 has been cancelled.

The Berlin Parks Commission holds an annual clean-up day and Take Pride in Berlin Week around Earth Day (April 22nd).

Each year volunteers are needed to help us clean-up Berlin’s parks, but everyone is encouraged to do whatever they can in and around their own neighborhoods to show their Berlin Pride.  Ideas for Clean-Up Day/Take Pride in Berlin week:

  • Offer to paint an elderly neighbors porch
  • Start a neighborhood compost or herb garden
  • Encourage the neighborhood kids to use sidewalk chalk to draw pictures to brighten the streets.
  • Take advantage of the Town’s Yard Waste and Bulk Collection dates by planning your own spring spruce-up.

Information is also available on our Facebook page.
