Parks & Recreation

          Hamlet citizens enjoy ideal weather, which prevails year-round as Hamlet recreational opportunities offer a varied spectrum of activities. Our Parks and Recreational Department offers structured seasonal sports programs where people of all ages and interests are certain to find enjoyable pursuits. Facilities include lighted tennis courts and soccer fields, gymnasium and playgrounds. Hamlet has had eight of our young men who played in our recreational league to go on and play professional baseball and football. They include: Franklin Stubbs-LA Dodgers, Bill Harris-Cleveland Indians, Louis Breeden-Cincinnati Bengals, James Hamilton-Jacksonville Jaguars, Mike Quick-Philadelphia Eagles, Oscar Sturgis-Dallas Cowboys, Doug Thomas-Seattle Seahawks, and Perry Williams-New York Giants.
          Hamlet City Lake area offers picnicking and fishing. Future park improvements already underway will include a botanical wonderland consisting of nature trails, water areas for paddle boating, visitor’s center, and other recreational sports.

-Notice to Public-

Do not feed the geese or ducks at the Hamlet City Lake.
