Recreation Commission

About the Commission

The Charlton Recreation Commission, a Three Member Elected Board, oversees all Town Sports fields, facilities and recreational activities/schedules throughout the Town. The Commission works with the Department of Public Works to ensure Seasonal operations and maintenance.

Municipal Fields Notice

Please be advised that groups participating in Sporting Events using the Municipal Recreation Fields can NOT use the Library Parking Lots- reserved for their patrons, and are NOT allowed to park in the Westridge Cemetery.  Individuals who DO park in these designated areas (Library and Cemetery) may have their vehicles ticketed or towed. 

Recreation Commission Statement

Charlton has much to offer for outdoor recreation, with a beautiful playground for the younger children, a newly resurfaced basketball court, a multi-functional skatepark for skateboards, scooters, rollerblades, and bicycles, sports programs and fields for all ages, and hiking trails thru out the Town.  As Elected Commissioners, we work hard with Town Officials, Sports Leagues and our Department of Public Works to oversee these areas and will continue to value your input, new ideas, to achieve goals for the benefit of the Town.

The Commission supports the Annual Old Home Day Event, Earth Day Event, and  Blueberry Festival.  Charlton Heritage Preservation Trust has information on hiking trails! Check out their individual pages for more information, and please feel free to attend our Meetings as we value  Community input.

The town of Charlton Recreation Commission is sponsoring Adult Recreational volleyball.

We are currently looking for a few more players to join. Please email Sheri Zanca at for more information.
