Parks and Recreation

The Town of Berlin's Parks and Recreation Department has several parks and hiking trails for citizens to utilize, in addition to programs and classes for all ages and more activities for families to enjoy.

Information for summer programs is currently available. Registration for pool passes is currently going on as is registration for swim lessons. Pool passes must be purchased in person but you can register for lessons on-line as long as you have a current pool pass. Please read through the policy for registering for swim lessons and buying a pool pass does not guarantee a spot in lessons. Click here for the summer brochure and here for the aquatics brochure. More information is also available under Topics.

We are currently taking registrations for a Lifeguarding class to be held August 5-9 (August 10 may be used for make-ups/testing). Click here for the flyer with information. You must attend every class. Minimum of 6 needed to run the class. Non-residents can register starting July 15. Deadline to register is Thursday, August 1 at 7 p.m. Any residents that register for this class, successfully pass all requirements and are hired by the Berlin Parks and Recreation Department for the summer of 2025 and work the entire summer, will be reimbursed the $155 registration fee in August of 2025. Please note that successful completion of the course does not guarantee being hired by the Department.

We are currently selling GAD passes for Lake Compounce! You must purchase in person during business hours. Cost is $34 for residents and $35 for non-residents. We will have tickets available until August 9. Some restrictions may apply.
