About the Recreation Commission

HISTORY OF THE COMMISSION

The South Hero Recreation Commission was formed approximately 30 years ago as an extension of the town Selectboard to enhance healthy recreational activities for community members and visitors. Members are volunteers appointed by the Selectboard and are responsible to the Selectboard.

Over the years, many activities have been sponsored including soccer for youth and adults, basketball, volleyball, tryathalon, swimming lessons, running races, ice skating, and cycling. Some programs have involved combining efforts with other island towns and with the schools. Significant effort has also been directed at providing locations for healthy recreational activities.

One of the leaders in this regard was Donald Peach, a former and well-loved resident. Through his and many others’ hard work, the town has secured property which will eventually become the parks & trails of South Hero. We envision a healthier and happier community as a result of these facilities and programs.
