About Gates Rec & Pks


Access to recreation, parks and leisure services is an essential part of every person's physical and emotional well-being. These opportunities also plays a vital role in the quality of life within a community. The Town of Gates Recreation and Parks Department believes in the philosophy of offering quality recreational activities and well maintained parks to the residents of Gates at an affordable and reasonable cost.

Gates Recreation and Parks Mission Statement.


Gates Recreation and Parks Department is governed by a 6-member Commission comprising of volunteer citizens.  The Commission meets once a month, except July and August. 


The Friends of Gates Recreation and Parks is a group of individuals who support the Town of Gates Recreation and Parks Department. As a not-for-profit organization, we are comprised of volunteers who work towards two complementary purposes. First, we provide grant development and procurement efforts to support development of recreation opportunities and park development in the Town of Gates. Second, as a group of volunteers we are a support group for Gates Recreation and Parks events.

Joining our group is an excellent opportunity to volunteer a little time for something that can have a lasting impact. For more information, contact Daniel Hoock, as indicated below.
