Depot Square Park
This small urban park is a great setting for a picnic, with a shady riverside gazebo and plenty of benches and grassy areas. The Brenner Bridge footbridge extends over the confluence of the Nubanusit and the Contoocook Rivers, to the Riverwalk Parking Lot.  

Teixeira Park 
Located on Union Street, just south of Nature's Green Grocer, this small park features a stone ring garden and is often referred to as "Stonehenge Park".  Good for a picnic or taking the dog for a stroll.  Just remember that dog walkers by town code must carry a plastic bag or scoop to collect waste left by their dogs and remove it for sanitary disposal. 

Putnam Park
Located on Grove St. alongside the Nubanusit falls. This park is a nice gathering space for families and small groups. The ability to access electricity makes this park attractive to gatherings requiring power for lights and sound.
