Hutchinson Recreation Commission provides our community with lifelong wellness, cultural, natural, and recreational opportunities that promote healthy minds and bodies through innovative programs, state-of- the-art facilities, and protected open spaces.
Downtown Hutchinson is the center for community events, unique shops and services, and casual and upscale dining and entertainment. Public investment has redeveloped the streetscape from 5th Avenue to Avenue C, with additional improvements being made from Seventh Avenue south to Carey Park. These improvements will include public green spaces, a river walk, amphitheater, water spray park and many other beautiful park areas.
Live like a local on the Third Thursday of each month as Downtown Hutchinson turns into a celebration of local art, music, and community. Stroll the streets of Downtown Hutchinson and take in the local music and art scene while shopping, dining, and enjoying the month’s featured activities and events. This monthly mini-community festival attracts all ages.
You’ll enjoy rates that are very reasonable and a relaxing atmosphere at the Carey Park Golf Course. This 18 hole golf course with over 6500 yards of beautifully manicured grounds is one of the best municipal courses in Kansas. Monday from Noon to dusk and Tuesday through Sunday from dawn to dusk, this beautiful course is open to the public with no membership required and you can reserve a tee time up to week in advance.
Located on the beautiful Kansas Prairie, Hutchinson is your one-stop destination for family fun and adventure. Here, you can catch a basketball tournament, be immersed in the history of the space race, head underground for a subterranean adventure, zip down a waterslide, shop at a trendy boutique, and dine at one of our locally-owned restaurants.
