Burlington Spotlight: Burlington Parks & Recreation 

March 20, 2024

Burlington is such an active community for folks old and young. Much of the reason why is the dedication and planning done by one of Burlington’s amazing organizations, Burlington Parks & Recreation. 

From fishing derbies for families to summer concert series in the park, truck days in autumn and spooky activities for the kids on Halloween, it seems like Burlington is always up to something!

Oh, So Much Fun!

There are so many options to get involved in the community and help you get to know your neighbors, allow children to grow and learn and connect you to nature in our beautiful town. 

Some of the fun activities planned annually include the Spring Easter Hunt held every year right before Easter weekend, the Family Fishing Derby held in May, the summer concert series on the Town Common held every Tuesday and Thursday every week during the summer, Municipal Truck Day and Trucktober held in the fall and of course holiday events such as the Halloween Spooktacular, Turkey Trot and Holiday Lights. 

In addition to these fun annual events, there are special events throughout the year such as the Special Someone Soiree in February around Valentine’s Day, the Sneaker Prom and Community Yard Sale in April, Springapalooza in May, the Great Family Campout and Regional track meet in June, tennis tournament in July, a Fitness Festival in the Fall and Gingerbread Men Making during the holidays. Don’t forget “Celebrate Burlington Day” which boasts a carnival, car show, concert and fireworks! 

All of these special events and annual community events are just the tip of the iceberg as Burlington Parks and Recreation also manages so much of the community programming such as the sports, fitness and crafts programming.
