In response to COVID-19 and to encourage recommended social distancing, all in-person Milton Recreation programs and events have been cancelled through April 30, including the annual Egg Hunt. We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation, and cancel further programming if needed. We continue to be in contact with program instructors and participants, and will issue refunds for those that have pre-registered and paid for cancelled programs and events. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to providing many more recreation opportunities to the community of Milton in the future!
Parks & Trails
Milton’s parks, trails, and recreation areas remain open at this time for those that wish to utilize them for exercise in the fresh air and sunshine!

Milton Ice Out
UPDATE: The ice is OUT! Please stay tuned for the announcement of a winner(s) and more information as soon as we are able to determine. Thanks to all involved in making this event a huge success - we achieved our first year goal of selling over 500 tickets!
Inspired by the hugely popular annual tradition at Joe’s Pond in Danville, VT – Milton now has its very own Ice Out Contest in 2020! Purchase one or more tickets for one dollar each, and guess the date and time that the ice will “go out” on Arrowhead Mountain Lake. The winner or winners with the closest to the official date & time will receive 50% of the total proceeds from ticket sales. The remaining 50% will then be used to support Milton’s annual Independence Day Celebrations. Tickets can be purchased online until April 1, 2020.
Master Plan Update 2020
Milton Recreation’s Master Plan Update 2020 has now been completed and is available for all to view!
The Recreation Master Plan is a planning guide that describes in very specific terms, existing community resources, the community’s recreation program and facility needs, and strategies and action steps for prioritizing Milton’s investments in recreation and park facilities and programs.
