Parks & Recreation


Swimming is only permitted between Memorial Day and Labor Day when lifeguards are on duty.

We hope the new website will help you in locating the information you are looking for about the Town of Canandaigua's park and recreation. If you have any questions, please contact me.

The Town of Canandaigua is proud of our parks:

We have cabins, buildings and pavilions to rent for reunions, weddings, parties and other activities. We also have two swimming beaches, playgrounds, walking trails, disc golf as well as fields for soccer, softball, and other sports.

Please see our 2018 Town/City Recreation guide. We offer a number of programs for town residents including preschool programs, activities for children  ages six and up, fishing, disc golf and archery classes.

New Senior Program, Cabin Fever Reliever, starting November 8, 2018 and running every Thursday morning 9:30-11:30am. Click here for details!
