The Town of Hurley Recreation Department oversees the Hurley Park on Dug Hill Road in West Hurley, as well as the camps associated with that facility and other youth activities. The Department also runs trips throughout the year for a variety of educational, sporting, and entertainment events. These trips are publicized in the Town of Hurley Newsletter and on this website. 

Town Park

The Town of Hurley Park is located near the top of Dug Hill Road in West Hurley. The grounds boast a pavilion, building with kitchen and bathroom, playground, double ball field, basketball court, tennis court and a sand volleyball court. There is also a small bike trail through the upper woods called Blueberry Trail due to the wild berries through which the trail was blazed.


Park Rental

You must be a Town of Hurley resident to rent the Park and facilities on Dug Hill Rd. Reservations for any given date must be made in that calendar year. The ball field cannot be rented and the park remains open to the public if the pavilion is rented.

  • A refundable security deposit of $100 will be collected on all park reservations

  • An optional non-refundable $50 kitchen fee will be collected where applicable

Also non-refundable is a trash removal fee that will be based on the size of your party. We are simply trying to be fair and equitable with our fee structure, so please bear in mind that a custodian will monitor all events and an additional fee will be deducted from your security deposit should your party exceed the number listed on your application.

  • Up to 50 people:  $20 non-refundable
  • Up to 100 people:  $30 non-refundable
  • Up to 200 people:  $40 non-refundable
  • Over 200 people:  $50 non-refundable
