The Park and Recreation Department no longer mails a paper brochure to every residence in Needham, and will only print a limited number of the brochures each season. Printed brochures will be available at the Park and Recreation Office, the Town Managers Office in Town Hall, the Needham Public Library, the Police Department-Dispatch Desk and The Center at the Heights.
