The mission of the Brunswick Parks and Recreation Department is to improve the quality of life for all Brunswick residents by providing an opportunity for individuals to spend time on leisure, culture, social, educational and recreational activities that encourage health, relaxation, fitness, enjoyment and learning.

The total park system of the City of Brunswick has been created for the use and enjoyment of our City residents and their guests. There are presently 20 park sites for a total of 335 acres. Parks are community parks, neighborhood parks, and undeveloped open space.

A diverse array of planned activities are scheduled the year around. We enthusiastically encourage all of our residents to participate in these activities. Details of activities appear here in the Parks section of the web site. Other programs are promoted in the local newspapers.

The benefits of our Parks and Recreation facilities are endless. They provide an accessible place to enjoy nature, improve health, reduce crime and create community pride while preserving property values. The City of Brunswick is fortunate to have a total parks system. Come, visit us often and get more out of life.
