Special events and school vacation field trips are always well attended. We offer a Haunted Halloween Hayride, Visit Santa Night, Santa calling, and an Easter Egg Hunt. Dances and Socials are held for grades 4 to 8 throughout the year. In the winter we rent out snowshoes and cross country skis.
Parks & Recreation Facilities
Our Recreation Park consists of 70 acres which includes nature trails, soccer fields, softball field, playground, tennis courts, picnic area, and horseshoe pits. Public bathrooms are open May through October. Our tennis courts are also available for use May through October. Because our tennis courts are maintained by user fees, there is a policy to purchase tennis keys for the season. Keys may be purchased at the Wells Parks and Recreation Department at Town Hall, or at the Transfer Station.
Public Facility Use
The Town of Wells wants to encourage and support activities sponsored by the community associations, nonprofit organizations and the general public by providing various indoor and outdoor town facilities for use. The Public Facility Use Agreement (PDF) outlines the terms and conditions that must be adhered to.
Volunteerism & Special Talents
We are always looking for new programs to offer to the community. If you have any interest or special talents and you would like to offer a program through us please fill out our Volunteer / Coaches application, visit our volunteer page, or contact Tina LeBlanc at 207-646-5826. Many of our programs rely on volunteerism such as our sports programs and special events to help make them successful.
We appreciate all our volunteers and are always looking for more. If you are interested in helping with any of our programs please give us a call and we will be happy to set you up.
