RECREATION PROGRAMS


DCSR offers to the North Haven community an outstanding array of recreational programs and leisure activities designed to meet the needs of toddlers through senior citizens. Staff members and Parks and Recreation
Commissioners are consistently striving to meet the challenge of providing over 150 varied recreational programs and activities throughout the year.


Annually nearly 40,000 residents participate in the offerings which are designed to span the wide range of interests of our residents. Fitness programs such as Fitness Fun and aqua aerobics, classes on dog obedience, preschool activities, nursery school programs, sports camps, summer camps, playgrounds and special interest bus trips are just some of the many activities in which our residents can participate. Summer and holiday times bring added excitement with traditional seasonal programming and the extremely popular Summer Concert Series on the Town Green. Throughout the summer months well-known groups from the 50’s and 60’s join with contemporary favorites to entertain with music and song. Many of these special seasonal offerings are funded in whole or in part by the generous sponsorship of the business community.


A highlight of the department continues to be the Walter J. Gawrych Community Pool, which will enter its twenty
second year of operation. Swim lessons and programs for youngsters through seniors remain among the most
popular offerings of the department. For fiscal year July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010 there were 580 pool members. These members are in addition to daily pool passes sold with an average of 30 per week. The facility is open daily for fitness programs, lessons, open swims and birthday parties.


DCSR remains proud of its commitment to meeting the recreational needs of the North Haven community through maximum utilization of available resources. In addition to offering its own programs and supporting the interscholastic athletic programs of the Department of Education, The Parks and Recreation Commission also
approves co-sponsorship of many youth organizations such as Hamden-North Haven Swim Club, Max Sinoway
Baseball League, North Haven Soccer Club, North Haven Girls’ Softball, North Haven Youth Football, North Haven Lacrosse Club and North Haven Youth Basketball.

Information concerning all recreational programs and facilities may be obtained at the Recreation Center office on Linsley Street or by calling 203-239-5321 ext. 530.
