Message from Parks and Recreation
It is widely recognized that being active has many benefits, from a personal, social, environmental and economic point of view. We are pleased to be able to provide residents with a wide range of opportunities to engage in leisure activities of your choice. Our programs and services are reflective of current demand and the changing needs in sport and recreation service delivery.
We strive to ensure that all of our programs and facilities are safe and accessible and we recognize the importance of finding balance in our service delivery between being affordable and inclusive and ensuring a revenue stream to obtain a certain level of cost recovery for our tax payers.
We are also blessed with a strong network of volunteers in our community who deliver a significant number of our sport programs and it is due to their efforts that our City is able to offer affordable yet high quality programs to our youth.
We welcome your feedback and encourage residents and visitors alike to let us know if there are areas in which you believe we can better serve you.
Enjoy our City and its many wonderful parks and recreation facilities.

Tobacco Free Policy
The City of Charlottetown has adopted a “new” Tobacco Free Policy for Indoor and Outdoor Recreation and Sport Facilities, which went into effect January 1, 2009. The City believes that through public awareness and education, we can encourage users and the general public to respect the health of everyone and create a healthy environment at City owned and operated indoor and outdoor facilities.
We all appreciate clean walkways, park facilities and open spaces. Please be a responsible pet owner; help keep our facilities clean. “Stoop and Scoop”. By-law: Section 21 CAMA
