  • Fall Youth Sports Update: August 7, 2020  SPR is now taking registrations for Fall Youth Sports including: Field Hockey, Soccer, Start Smart Flag Football, NEW Fall Track and Field, and NEW USTA Tennis in the Parks Coming next week: NEW Golf program for grades 6-8.  In light of circumstances regarding COVID-19, we are following all recommendations from the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development and guidance from the Maine Principals Association, and feedback from our recent community survey.  We are thrilled to offer a fall sports season, and have adopted changes this year to offer programs in a safe manner, including smaller divisions, modified play, and COVID-19 prevention protocols.  Registration for programs is open through September 4th, or as space allows per program. 
  • SPR Seasonal Employment Opportunities: August 3, 2020.  Saco Parks and Recreation is currently hiring for the following positions: School’s Out Program Counselors, full time and part time opportunities, Youth Sports Instructors, and Seasonal Program Staff.  Please visit our Job Openings Newspage for additional info.
  • School’s Out Program Update: July 24, 2020.  We are working with the Saco School Department as they plan their upcoming school year to evaluate what opportunities will be available to offer care services for ‘20-‘21.  School’s Out program enrollment is not open at this time.  Please stay tuned for updates.  Thank you!
  • City Playground Use Updates: Per the State of Maine DECD update on June 10th, the use of outdoor playgrounds is now permitted and recommended to use at your own risk. We advise the use of hand sanitizer both before and after use of the playground and maintaining physical distancing as much as possible.  Starting July 6th through August 21st: playgrounds located at Fairfield School, C.K. Burns School, and the Saco Community Center will be closed for public use between 7:30am-6:00pm Monday-Friday while our summer programs are in session at those facilities.  Available daytime playgrounds during the week while camp is in session include Young School, Diamond Riverside Park, and neighborhood playgrounds.  All playgrounds are available in the evenings on weekdays after 6:00pm during the summer.
  • City Field Closure Update: Effective May 28th, 2020, the Saco Parks & Recreation Department has made the decision to keep all city fields closed to all outside user groups and non SPR programming until further notice.  We genuinely understand the effect this will have, but as a department we are airing on the side of caution and safety.

    We will continue to monitor State regulations and guidelines concerning COVID-19 and the impact they have on our programs and fields.  It has always been our goal and intention to provide the best possible conditions for athletes to compete on. We will make every effort we can to return to “regulation play” as soon as possible and will post an update here under announcements when fields have re-opened.  In the meantime, please be patient and stay safe.  Thank you!
