Mission Statement

To develop, provide and maintain publicly accessible recreation facilities, parks and programs to be used in a safe and nondiscriminatory manner. It is our belief that these facilities, parks and programs are to be made available to all Preston residents. This is in accordance with the ordinance (PDF) dated February 28, 1968 establishing the Parks and Recreation Commission and the Municipal Capital and Non-Recurring Expense Fund.

Preston Parks and Recreation Department was created in 1968 to provide parks and recreation programs and services for our town. We offer year-round activities for pre-school and school-aged children, youth, adults and seniors. We oversee scheduling and maintenance of Preston Community Park, located at the intersection of Route 117 and 2A.


The Parks and Recreation Commission is comprised of eleven volunteer members; appointed by the Board of Selectmen per Ordinance, Town Minutes, Book 9, page 77, February 1968: Amendment, Town Minutes, Book 10, pages 161 to 163, May 1996.

If you are interested in joining the Preston Parks and Recreation Commission, please contact the Preston Parks and Recreation Department at 860-887-5581, ext. 113.
