Parks and Recreation

The Parks & Recreation Department is responsible for overseeing the recreation facilities, programs and leisure services for residents and visitors.

We work closely with community groups, volunteers and individuals as a facilitator to ensure that the community needs are addressed. Working together with our neighbours in Leeds and the Thousand Island Township we offer a wide variety of recreational and leisure activities for children and adults.
