Our office hours vary from day to day and time of year. Due to the small size of our Department (1 full-time director and 1 part-time assistant), we are often in and out of the office running various programs and maintaining recreation spaces. If you need to meet with the park staff in person, please call or e-mail ahead of time to set up an appointment.

All information for our programs can be found on the programs and links page. Select any program to find out more information such as dates, ages, cost, general program description and more! Please note if this program is currently active or not as some programs will have information from the previous year, season, or session. Our current programs are also publicized using flyers at Town Hall, in the Plainville Public Elementary schools, etc., posted on our sign on South Street, and shared through our social media sites, including Facebook and Instagram. Follow us on social media to keep up with current offerings!

Yes, all of our programs are open to non-residents at no additional fee.
Registration can be done online or in person. Upon completion of registration you will receive an email confirming that we received the registration. Please be patient as we normally do not reply on weekends or evenings but we will typically send confirmation within 24 to 48 hours.
Online registration can be done through the sign-up page. This will bring you to a registration form that needs to be filled out completely for you and/or your child. Don't Forget to hit Submit after you have completed all information. Please note that at times there may be required questions that do not pertain to you or the program you are signing up for. For example, an adult registering for Pickleball will not need to include grade, bus, or teacher's name. If the question does not apply simply write N/A.
Additionally, you may sign up in person at the Park Department office. We will have paper registration forms available for those who prefer to sign-up in person.

All payments should be received by the first day of the program. Failure to pay for program(s) without communication to Park Department will result in ineligibility for future program registration until balance is paid in full! Please see the following payment options:
All checks must be made out to the Plainville Park Department. If paying for multiple programs on one single check please indicate the breakdown on the memo line or on separate note. Confirmation emails will be sent for all payments once we received them. Please be patient!
Please contact the Park department with any financial concerns. Payment plans and assistance may be provided for those who communicate specific needs. No child will ever be denied participation due to financial constraints.
Refunds are given on a case by case situation. If you have to pull you and/or your child from a program before the start we will keep a record of the amount your family has in a credit balance. This credit can be used towards a future program with the Plainville Park Department. Refunds in the original form are up to Director discretion.

Yes! Our department offers several spaces for rent, including our ballfields and soccer fields, the pavilion, gazebo, tennis and basketball courts, and more.
You can download a Facility Request Form (PDF) or you can stop by our office to fill one out. All spaces are first-come, first-serve and must be approved by the Recreation Director and Commissioners. We ask that requests are given at least 2 weeks in advance.
