Friends of SK Parks & Recreation

Please join us in ensuring we maintain a quality park and recreation system for our children and our children's children.
South Kingstown residents take great pride in our outstanding parks and recreation system. Whether it's a child making her first basket, whizzing down the bike path, or enjoying the solitude of a walk along a nature trail, our park and recreation system fosters a "sense of community" by providing a place to meet and socialize, learn, and grow. Our parks also protect valuable public land forever.

As a growing community, we have many needs. The number of children in our schools continues to grow, roads need to be re-surfaced, and bridges need to be repaired. The Parks and Recreation Department is also confronting the challenge of continuing to meet the leisure needs of our community with limited resources.

The Recreation Commission created the Friends of South Kingstown Parks and Recreation in 1999 to support the mission of the Parks and Recreation Department. We assist the department by pursuing grants and donations, accept real and personal property, and help promote the importance of parks and recreation in our community.
