The Montgomery County Parks and Recreation Commission is composed of citizens in the community that serve as an advisory board to the department in developing leisure activities and programs for residents of all ages. Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Montgomery County Government Center, and are open to the public. Individuals interested in joining the commission should submit the Citizen Volunteer Application. The minutes from our most recent meeting are available here.

Youth Athletics

Parks and Recreation offers youth athletics in the Auburn, Eastern Montgomery, and Prices Fork areas of the county. We approach recreational sports with the belief that emphasis should be placed on educational and social benefits, rather than competition. Ultimately, it is our goal to ensure that every participant receives an enjoyable and lasting recreation experience in a safe and positive environment.
