Our goal as a Town is to provide all community members with the opportunity to grow physically and mentally through living a healthier more active life. The steps we are taking to achieve this goal is by offering programs that interest all members of all ages within the community. The Town is working hard to maintain all facilities that are used for recreational activities and we are consitently looking for new opportunities to bring new programming and facilities to our area.

Looking to enjoy thechanging leaves and escape from the town streets? Why not enjoy one of our 2 trails: The John Crawford Trail & Stewiacke River County Trail? Each trail offers its own unique experience. The John Crawford Trail has a small 600-meter loop covered in gravel, making it user-friendly, and it also has a back loop that takes you through the forest! The Stewiacke River Country Trail loops around our Ballfields and up behind the Mastodon. There are many great views of the river, and you can often see eagles flying by. A lot of people have yet to stop down by the Fish Shack in Stewiacke. The Fisherman Association has constructed a short 500 meter trail that takes you to wonderful views of the river, and you can enjoy these views from a gazebo! What spot could be better to watch the tidal bore?
Do you like to Skate?
In Dennis Park there is a small pond that freezers over for skating during the colder months. The Town of Stewiacke clears the ice and floods it as often as possible.
