Welcome to the South Kingstown Parks and Recreation Department! Created in 1939, the Department provides parks and recreation programs and services to the residents and visitors of our Town.

We offer over 1,000 recreation programs and classes annually for all ages and interests. We manage the Neighborhood Guild community center, Peace Dale Office Building, Stepping Stone Preschool, an extensive park system, William C. O'Neill Bike Path, Town Beach, and the Old Mountain Field in-line skating facility and skateboard park. Approximately 67% of our annual operating budget is generated by program fees, facility operations, trust funds, and grants and donations. The remainder of our budget is provided by local tax support.
