Dear Scituate Residents:
We have been very busy this winter. Along with running 103 classes we have been working with the Friends of Scituate Recreation, Inc. & Scituate Historical
Society to re-structure and expand our community sailing program. The Sailing Committee along with the Friends of Scituate Recreation have sent a mailing to
every household in Scituate to explain more about the program & opportunities for your support. Also, we are sponsoring a “Burgee Design Contest”. You will
find more information on the page 12 of the brochure.
We also are partnering with the Department of Conservation and Recreation to offer a “ParkPass”. We will have in our office one ParkPass that will be avail-
able to families in our community to sign-out and visit one of 56 Massachusetts State Parks. This is a pilot program in an effort to connect children & nature.
From Boston to the Berkshires, we invite you to discover the natural, historic and cultural resources within the state park system, and to enjoy a wide variety of
recreational opportunities including hiking, swimming, mountain biking, horseback riding and much more!
Please, take a moment to read through the brochure; there is a lot more information & new programs to check out!
“Catch the Scituate Spirit”…and get involved today!

The Mission of the Scituate Recreation Department is to provide exceptional and creative programs, services and facilities (such as beaches, ball
fields and playgrounds) that foster community spirit and involvement while enhancing the quality of life for all people in Scituate.
