About Us

Essex Parks & Recreation / Essex Junction Recreation & Parks

Parks And Recreation BuildingStaff members at Essex Parks & Recreation and Essex Junction Recreation & Parks have been working closely together this last year, resulting in the departments co-locating at the offices of 75 Maple Street. While we’ll remain separate departments, we’ll be working together, under one roof, coordinating services and offering high-quality programs and facilities.

We create community through people, parks, and programs. This move brings together all of our resources, staffing, and programming. It allows us to more closely coordinate our efforts, and increase opportunities for youth sports, recreation, and building community.

We advance parks and recreation efforts that enhance the quality of life for the community of Essex.

We do this by:

  • Providing recreational experiences for all ages.
  • Providing community opportunities for fun and celebration.
  • Offering affordable and accessible programs.
  • Providing diverse learning experiences.
  • Promoting lifelong health and well-being.
  • Maintaining environmental stewardship of our parks and facilities.

Together, we’re your connection to a healthier community.
