Creating Community Through People, Parks, and Programs

The Town of Yorktown Department of Parks & Recreation was created on a full time basis in October 1965.  The Parks and Recreation Department endeavors to provide quality and diversified recreation programs for residents of all age groups from tots to senior citizens.  The Department also strives to develop and maintain a diversified park system that appeals to a variety of interests.

The Department releases two brochures per year detailing program offerings.  The Fall/Winter brochure is available and mailed directly to residents around Labor Day and the Spring/Summer brochure is available and mailed the beginning of April.

Department staff consists of a Superintendent, an Assistant Superintendent, a Recreation Supervisor, a Senior Office Assistant (Recreation), an Office Assistant (Automated Systems), a Recreation Assistant, a Park Foreman, Assistant Foreman and 9 additional park maintenance staff.  In addition to these year round employees, the staff is supplemented by approximately 325 supervisors, leaders, instructors, lifeguards and attendants on a seasonal and part time basis.

Yorktown is also a 1/4 party to Nor-West Special Services which provides recreational programming for persons with special needs.
