Mission Statement

The Parks and Recreation Department is committed to enhancing the quality of life for all Chatham Residents, by striving to provide the best recreational programming and park facilities possible.


The Parks and Recreation Department is a service-based department. We work interactively with local and regional sports associations, school departments, other town departments, individual town residents, other Park and Recreation departments, churches, and private organizations. Parks and Recreation are responsible for soccer fields, ball fields, tennis courts, beaches, skateboard parks, picnic areas, children's play areas, and summer programs.

Program Registration

Adult and children's program registration is available through the Community Center's website.
