Parks and Recreational Facilities

Parks and Recreational Facilities

The Town has its own regional recreation complexes within each quadrant of the community. These parks offer ball fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts, picnic pavilions, horseshoe courts, soccer fields, a street hockey court, and two passive park areas: one with a walking trail and one with a pond for fishing. The Public Works Department provides seasonal primary care of the recreational facilities. Parks open April 1 (weather permitting) and close November 1. 

Town residents can apply for park pavilion permits for Devlin and Wall Parks at the Public Works Department, 9957 Grubbs Road, Wexford, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The $40 park permit fee is payable by check only to the Town of McCandless. This fee is refundable only if cancellation is made 30 days or more prior to the permit date.

Applicants must be a resident of the Town of McCandless and at least 18 years of age. Proof of residency is required.
