Each one of us, regardless of age or ability, has a need to play, gather and have fun. Recreation and leisure activities not only improve our health and wellbeing, they strengthen families and support the development of inclusive communities.

The City of Saint John supports a community-based approach to recreation opportunities. The City provides operational funding to local community and neighbourhood centres who deliver recreation and wellness services to residents. The Recreation and Community Services team works closely with a variety of service providers and citizens to ensure they have the tools and resources required to meet the changing needs of the communities they serve.
