The Recreation Department is committed to provide quality recreational programs and facilities to the residents of Franklin. By providing consistency, dependability and an obligation to our residents and the programs they partake, we strive to elevate the quality of life for our community.
The Recreation Department is a service-based department. We work interactively with local sports associations, school departments, individual Town residents, private groups, church and civic groups, as well as other Town departments. In the course of a given year, over 8,000 people are affected by Recreation operations. Our clientele continues to increase each year. Recreation is responsible for scheduling all fields, playgrounds, and courts. The Recreation Department continues to serve the residents in the area of recreation and leisure services. Our department handles everything from sporting activities for children, to
families in need.

NEW Refund Policy: Refunds are only issued in the event of a canceled program or if there is a medical emergency with a doctor's note. A $10 fee will be charged for all refunds.
The Recreation Department has established a Program Assistance Fund for all Recreation programs and Franklin Youth Sports programs offered through the Town of Franklin. The Program Assistance Fund was established with the understanding that there are residents who cannot afford the registration fee and are therefore unable to participate. The sole purpose of this fund is to find ways to give every child and family the opportunity to participate in recreation activities while providing a mechanism for equitable treatment and optimal accommodation for resident families
The Recreation Department has an application process for families in need of financial assistance with signing their children up for programs. Please download a copy of the form below and mail/bring to our office at least two weeks prior to close of registration.
