"Building Community Through People, Parks, & Programs"

Thank you to the City of Saco Communications Department for capturing the magic of our summer 2019 season with our K-8 camps and Twin City Theater Academy!  We are so lucky in our profession to be able to spend our winters dreaming and planning for the amazing summer programs we will offer.  This video was recognized by the Maine Recreation and Park Association in 2020, winning the "Why We Love Summer Camp" promotion challenge.

Saco Parks & Recreation Mission Statement

As Harry S. Truman said…”The right of children to play and to dance; the right of youth to sport for sports’ sake; the right of men and women to use leisure in the pursuit of happiness in their own way, are basic to our American heritage.”
