Description of Services:

The Lexington Recreation Department is where Lexington residents can participate in year-round, unique, quality programs. Led by excellent, qualified instructors, these programs offer participants affordable opportunities for a wide variety of passive and active recreation. The goal of the Recreation Department is to provide recreational facilities and programs for Lexington residents. Please let us know about barriers that prevent participation. We are proud of our work with members of the community in creating exciting and successful programs. Please help us as we try to expand our ability to provide meaningful and accessible recreational opportunities for all. Your suggestions are welcomed.

Enterprise Fund:

The Lexington Recreation Department has operated as an Enterprise Fund since 1991.  Recreation programs are self-supported by setting user fees to cover all expenses.  The Director of Recreation, through the Recreation Committee, sets fees with the approval of the Board of Selectmen.  The Recreation Department operating budget supports staff that manages and delivers recreation programs along with the supplies needed to operate those programs.  Surplus revenues generated through the Recreation Enterprise (Recreation and Pine Meadows Golf Club) helps fund Capital Improvement Projects and financially supports some services provided to the Recreation Department by the Department of Public Works, Public Grounds Division, and payment of $100,000 per year towards the Lincoln Park debt.
