Northampton County's Parks, Trails and Open Space system consists of 22-county-owned parks, trails and conservation lands that highlight ridges, rivers, forest and farmlands. The Parks & Recreation Division is responsible for the maintenance, management, improvement and development of the County's 2,300-acre park system as well as grounds maintenance at Gracedale, the Human Services Complex and the County Government Center. Our parks offer active and passive recreational opportunities for everyone. We also develop and deliver community outdoor recreation and environmental education programs for the public, and develop and implement conservation projects in our County Parks.
Northampton County is a hub for major trail systems such as the Nor-Bath Trail, D&L Trail, September 11th National Memorial Trail and Liberty-Water Gap Trail connecting to over 300-miles of land and water trails.

Please run through the grass, smell the flowers, hug the trees, sing to the birds, relax on the benches... and remember to follow Northampton County's Park Rules and Regulations.
