Parks & Recreation

Township of Tyendinaga Recreation Complex


In 2001, the Township applied for and received a grant from SuperBuild to expand our existing Recreation Complex. Included in these plans was the construction of a 200 seat capacity multi purpose building, four soccer pitches, a softball field, a hardball field, 2 beach volleyball courts and a children’s playground.

After learning that the Township would be receiving funding for the expansion of the Recreation Complex a group of dedicated volunteers formed the Recreation Complex Development Committee to steer the construction of this huge project! Construction began in the spring of 2003 and in October 2003 the Recreation Hall officially opened for business. Once the Rec. Hall was completed the Recreation Committee made application to the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2004 and was successful in receiving funding to construct "Kids Place" a playground structure in the middle of the Recreation Complex. Four new soccer pitches were also constructed and completed in time for usage for the 2005 soccer season. The softball diamond was also built and used in the 2005 ball season. Two beach volleyball courts were also constructed and used for regular league play that summer. The hardball diamond saw it’s first game in the spring of 2006 and was used consecutively that season and onward. As a small rural community, with strong volunteer commitment we are very fortunate to have such recreation facilities in our Municipality and we are the envy of many of our Municipal neighbours.
