About the Park

The Park Board meets April -November each year to discuss enhancements, use, and maintenance of the park. Check Announcements for any Park Board openings.

The Hambden Township Park consists of 29.64 acres of land in Geauga County. The park is located on the north side of GAR Highway - across the street from the Hambden Town Hall and Hambden Elementary School. On that land are four baseball fields; four picnic pavilions; three play areas with swings, sand diggers, wood jungle gyms, a tarantula climber, a basketball court; 1.63 miles of walking track; and the Veteran’s Memorial.

In April 2013, the Hambden Township Trustees submitted and received a Nature Works Grant to construct the last phase of the walking trail. Up to this point, the trail was just under one mile in length. The Park Board continues to add new playground equipment for the young residents of Hambden Township.
