The Community Services Department is committed to providing our community with positive recreation experience for a healthy lifestyle. We offer activities such as swimming, skating and active camps, and take pride in our facilities, parks and trails which encourage an active community. We offer a number of sports fields including soccer pitches and baseball diamonds which accommodate all ages of play.

Saugeen Shores is also home to a variety of sports groups, leagues, fitness clubs and sports facilities which all help to promote a healthy active lifestyle in our community.
