Come play with us! The City of Hayden is the place to recreate and is pleased to offer its residents and visitors six parks encompassing a total of 57.5 acres of aesthetic park lands to enjoy. These parks offer a diversity of recreational opportunities for active families, including boating, swimming, soccer, softball, baseball, football fields and areas for family gatherings and picnics.
McIntire Family Park , Honeysuckle Beach, Finucane Park and Croffoot Park are constantly teeming with activity. McIntire Family Park and Finucane Park offer gazebo areas available to rent and reserve through the City.
Hayden's newest park, Stoddard Park, opened in 2014 and emphasizes the rural roots of the City's past.
Honeysuckle Beach is the City's own public beach certified under the guidelines of USLA with qualified lifeguards on duty June through August, and boasts one of the loveliest swimming beaches in the nation!
Croffoot Park which spans 25 acres along Lancaster and Ramsey Road is truly a diamond in the rough. With its completion came baseball diamonds, softball fields, soccer fields, basketball courts and a tot lot. We will continue development of this area through the summer and into the fall.

In January 2016, Hayden City Park was renamed McIntire Family Park to honor former Mayor Ronald B. McIntire and his wife, Joanne, for their many years of service to this community. Established in 1960, McIntire Family Park is home to many dedications and memorials, including the Robert J. Gordon Veterans Memorial Plaza. This was a portion of the land that was donated to the Village of Hayden for a Fire Station, City Hall, Community Center and park facilities. McIntire Family Park is the home of the annual Hayden Days celebration in July and the Thursday Night Concerts in the Park during July and August.

It is supervised by a USLA certified lifeguard staff throughout the summer, and is one of the gems of the Pacific Northwest. The beach is staffed with lifeguards from noon to 6pm during the summer months from mid-June through late August. We strongly encourage all non-swimmers to wear a personal flotation device!
