Seasonal Activities

Seasonal Activities for Summer 2018
To see what’s happening this season in communities across Kings County, take a look at the Kings County Recreation Guide!

 Splash Pad

The Kentville Splash Pad is open for the season! It’s fun (and free!) for the whole family, and you don’t need to know how to swim. The Splash Pad is open from dawn to dusk each day, and will remain open until September.

Memorial Pool

The pool opens for the season on July 1st, so dig out those swim suits and get ready for another fun season at Memorial Park. For just $2, you can enjoy a refreshing swim and there are three public swim times to choose from each day:
5:30-6:30pm (adults only, lane swim)
For more information and to register for swimming lessons see our pool page. 


Find out what all the racket is about! The tennis courts host structured programming throughout the season, but are free to use by the public as well. If you want to improve your tennis game or master a particular skill, you might want to try our private lessons this summer. For more information call our Recreation Intern, Brittany, in the office on (902) 679-2556. And visit our tennis page to get more information and register for our camps.
