The Town of Antigonish Recreation Department offers a wide array of programming, equipment and spaces for you and your family to stay healthy and active all year-round. Recreation includes parks, trails, facilities fields, youth and senior programs, as well as community opportunities for culture and heritage.

Recreation is a part of the Town of Antigonish's Department of Community Development. Community Development focuses on enhancing the overall quality of life for residents in Antigonish and surrounding communities by creating an environment that encourages new development, promotes entrepreneurship, and fosters our cultural well-being, as well as community pride. With the introduction of the new Community Development Department, the Town can take a more active role in implementing effective strategies that will build a healthy and economically prosperous community.
