Parks & Recreation

Mission

As part of its mission to provide and promote a broad range of safe, enjoyable recreational and educational opportunities for our citizens, the Parks and Recreation, Education and Culture (R.E.C.) Department offers a wide variety of programs for all ages.

Parks and R.E.C.

Services

In addition to passive parks, open spaces, and tot lots, the department manages three swimming pools, five community centers, the Arthur I. Snyder Tennis Complex, summer camps and after-school programs, and the Marjorie and William McDonald Center, a multi-purpose facility.

Cultural Enrichment

The department recognizes the importance of cultural enrichment in the lives of all citizens by providing festivals, musicals, concerts, and special performances in our 931-seat, state-of-the-art, Julius Littman Performing Arts Theater.

Other presentations and special events are offered at the Senator Gwen Margolis Amphitheater, an open-air facility behind our library, with grassy sloping knolls that seat 1,000.
