Basketball CourtRecreational activities are extremely important for all elements of society.  Development of confidence, social skills, and cooperation among participants are some of the benefits derived from involvement with recreation opportunities.  In a changing, highly technical and stressful society, recreational activities assist in the relief of stress and the promotion of health.

PlaygroundThe primary responsibility for providing recreational programs and facilities lies with the Recreation Department.  The New Shoreham Recreation Department has evolved since its full time establishment in 1996.  Over the past decade it has created a foundation to serve this community.

Beach TentThe department has been established full time since 1996 to provide programs, services and facilities for our community.  It is responsible for all recreational functions, facilities, activities, assets and resources within the town not under the school department.  We offer programs and activities on an annual basis for all ages.

The department strives to be self sufficient through fees, grants, and donations.  Roughly 80% of our budget is funded through these means.  The remainder of the budget is funded through taxes. 

Mission Statement 
The Town of New Shoreham Recreation Department is dedicated to the provisions of leisure and active recreation programming that will promote the general health, welfare and personal development of the citizens of the Block Island Community by providing enriching recreation experiences and quality facilities.
