Community Recreation Engagement Group

Our inaugural meeting in October was a great start to this group, but we would love to see more community groups represented!

Information posted below describes the group's basic purposes and discussion points.  Next meeting will be January 24th, 2018.

Among topics of discussion will be Wolfville's inclusion in the ValleyConnect.ca Partnership.  We will facilitate your group's entries into this master database of all things recreation in the Annapolis Valley.  Stay tuned for more information!

The Town of Wolfville cordially invites all current and potential Recreation Stakeholders to an introductory meeting of the Community Recreation Engagement Group (CREG).

This group will meet periodically to discuss all aspects of recreation in Wolfville, including: 

  • Current programs being offered in Wolfville (by all stakeholders)
  • Opportunities for improvements and expansion
  • Facility access and booking challenges
  • Partnership opportunities
  • Communication – between groups, organizations and with the public

CREG will hold no formal membership, and is open to any and all interested parties with a vested interest in recreation.  For the purposes of this group and its function, Recreation is broadly defined as any activity of leisure (i.e. not just “sports”, but all leisure activities). 

Participation will be the defining factor in the effectiveness of our Community Recreation Engagement Group.  With significant community buy-in, resource sharing and discussion of ideas, there is great potential for mutual benefit.

The first meeting will take place at the Wolfville Recreation Centre at 7 Victoria Avenue on Wednesday, October 4th at 7pm.  If you or your organization have an interest in joining the discussion, please RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots.
