Canton Recreation Department


The Canton Recreation Department is a shared service of the Town and Village of Canton that strives to provide inclusive, affordable, accessible recreational services for all Canton residents. The Department maintains several parks and playgrounds, including Taylor Park Beach and the Canton Recreational Pavilion Ice Arena. Additionally, the Recreation Department offers programs year-round to increase recreation opportunities. The variety of programs offered share a common goal of providing inclusive environments to promote participation in positive leisure time activities and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

The Canton Recreation Department collaborates with Nature Up North to promote Canton’s beautiful rivers, parks, and trails. Through programs such as the Canton Fall Trails Series, the Recreation Department and Nature Up North encourage residents to engage in their surrounding environment.
