Serving a population of over 200,000 people, Broome County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Youth Services oversees and maintains Nathaniel Cole Park (Town of Colesville), Dorchester Park (Town of Triangle), Greenwood Park (Town of Nanticoke); Grippen Park and Roundtop Picnic Area (both in the Village of Endicott), Hawkins Pond Nature Area (Town of Windsor), and Otsiningo Park (Town of Dickinson.) These facilities provide diverse, year-round recreational opportunities. Annually, over 2 million visitors enjoy three beaches, picnic areas and picnic shelters, play structures, a family campground, boating, miles of trails for walking, biking or cross-country skiing, and much more. Broome County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Youth Services also maintains AquaTerra Wilderness Area (466 undeveloped acres in the Town Of Binghamton), and the Community Garden Plots at Otsiningo Park.
Softball fields, soccer fields, and sand volleyball courts are available for organized teams and general public use. Free summertime "Broome Bands Together" concerts, the Annual Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally, the Broome County Parks Triathlon and untimed Youth Triathlon, and the wintertime Almost-Annual Crappie Derby are a few of the special events held each year. Nature trails at five Broome County Parks' facilities are participants in the Wegman's "Passport to Family Wellness" program. Returning to Otsiningo Park in 2017 is the Broome County Parks Scarecrow Display and Contest!
