The Town of Halton Hills strives to operate recreation facilities, programs and services which are accessible and available to meet the diverse needs of our citizens. There are many health, social, economic, and environmental benefits that result from involvement in recreation activities for all. The following supports are in place to assist you:
Town Policies Working for You!
Your ability to lead an active life is important to us. We provide accessible recreation programs for individuals of all ages, not only to enhance lives today but also in a healthy future. We believe that everyone deserves to enjoy and participate in recreational activities. Recreation & Parks has two Town policies outlining our commitment. Both policies reflect the Town’s value of ‘equal access to service, facilities and programs’ and the Town’s commitment to Recreation for All.
Affordability Policy – making recreational opportunities financially available to all residents. The policy outlines how we effectively allocate public funds for recreational programs and share Recreation & Parks resources with our partners in other social services.
The Region of Halton Social and Community Services provides financial assistance to qualifying families who have children 0-18 years of age. To inquire about what assistance is available, please call 1-866-442-5866 and ask to speak to an Intake Worker.
