Welcome to the Recreation Department

The Town of Canandaigua is proud of our recreation program. We are dedicated to offering all residents an opportunity to enjoy our beautiful parks while fostering a sense of pride and community.  We feel that our offerings are a cornerstone of what makes Canandaigua special and encourage our residents to participate to fully take advantage of our beautiful area. We work hard to ensure that our programming meets the needs of our residents.  


Our 2019 Summer Recreation Program has several offerings to beat the summer boredom.  This year, we are allowing families to sign their children up on a week-to-week basis during the 6 week program.  The programs run from July 8- August 16.  We also have Disc Golf, Archery, and Canoeing.  Please see the Recreation Guide below for further details.

 *Space is limited, so please return your forms promptly.
