Parks, Sportsfields and Splashpads

There are many multi-use parks and sports fields in Centre Wellington where a variety of games and tournaments are held, including baseball, soccer, rugby, football and lacrosse. 

We have volunteers who have stepped forward to look after the outdoor ice rinks at Bissell and Beatty Parks this winter.  In past year's, we have had rinks at Strathallan, Drimmie and Webster Parks.  If you are interested in helping at these rinks or would like to volunteer to make a rink in another park in Centre Wellington, please contact Matt Tucker at mtucker@centrewellington.ca or 519 846-9691 ext. 337.

Our splash pads are located at Millburn Park in Fergus and O'Brien Park in Elora.  They both operate from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.  The splash pads closed in September for the season but we look forward to opening them again late in May 2019! 

There are also a variety of special events throughout the year that utilize our parks and sports fields.

To inquire about booking one of our sports fields, please contact Centre Wellington Parks and Recreation.
