Town hopes you'll enjoy local parks and trails this month

Collingwood is joining other towns in celebrating Recreation and Parks Month this June


Each June, communities across Ontario celebrate Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM).  JRPM is recognized by municipalities, community organizations, and schools as a way of promoting the benefits of being active and recognizing the contribution that recreation and parks make to quality of life. 

Access to parks and recreation is a fundamental human need that helps foster personal health, strong communities, and social inclusion. JRPM celebrates Ontario’s spectacular parks and recreation services raising awareness for the role they play as a pathway to individual, community, and environmental well-being.

Recreation and parks are vital for our well-being.  This June, as part of Recreation and Parks Month, we encourage you to explore Collingwood’s network of trailsplaygrounds, and green spaces.  Check out the JRPM activity calendar for ideas to help you get started including children’s grow and flow yoga, StoryWalk on the Train Trail, pole walking, gardening, creating your own scavenger hunt, enjoying a picnic in the park and more. 

The Town of Collingwood offers many recreation programs throughout the year including aquatics and skating as well as activities at the museum and library. Planning is underway for a fall recreation activity guide. If you are looking for a particular program or are interested in advertising your non-profit organization’s programming in the activity guide, please contact customer service at 705-445-1030 or email [email protected]

Stay tuned for a fun announcement about new aquatic programs and events happening at Centennial Aquatic Centre this summer.

The town's parks, recreation and culture department also offers a variety of parks and facility rental options. When planning your next special event, consider one of our parks, arenas, meeting rooms or sports fields. Learn more:
