Make the most of your summer season this year! We can't wait to get out and explore everything Fitchburg has to offer. If you're traveling by car or bike or foot, you'll find something fun around every corner.
When the weather gets warmer, we love to stop at our favorite outdoor dining hotspots for a relaxing meal or cocktail. Many of our favorite restaurants have outdoor dining options that are perfect for an al Fresco meal. Many restaurants also feature live, outdoor music during the summer months!
Get out and golf
Golfers, it’s time to get out there and hit the links! Nine Springs Golf & Disc Course, a beautiful golf course located in the heart of Fitchburg, is open for the season and the nine hole par 30 layout provides playability for the novice, yet still has enough hazards to challenge even the most skilled players. Disc golfers pay a flat rate of $5/weekday or $8/weekend day and play all day!
Too hot or too rainy? If the weather isn't cooperating, you can bring your game indoors to X-Golf! With locations in Madison and Middleton, X-Golf is the premier indoor golf simulation experience. Golfers enjoy state of the art golf simulators designed for all skill levels and a full service bar with food.
Fitchburg’s Splash Pad is free, fun, family-oriented and the perfect way to beat the heat this summer! Water is sprayed, rained, poured and dumped from play features. The Pad has zero depth, so there’s no standing water to worry parents with smaller children. This wet and wonderful playground is fully accessible and safe for all ages and abilities. There are 3 zones:
• Toddler—with soft mists and gentle streams;
• Pre-teens—with high-energy, teambuilding activities
• Families—with dumping buckets, water tunnels and lots of good, clean fun. In keeping with Fitchburg’s green spirit, this is a recirculation splash pad. It recycles the water to conserve water resources and make it more energy efficient.
The Splash Pad is located at McKee Farms Park and opens June 1st, 2023! For more information and updates on any changes or closures, click here.
McGaw Park is home to Fitchburg's pickle ball courts! These beautiful courts opened in the fall of 2021 and are the perfect place to practice your game or learn how to play. You can register for clinics, lessons, leagues and tournaments, or reserve a court for when you'd like to play through the city's website.
