What we do...
The Recreation Department administers the Town's various recreation programs and services for the residents of the Unincorporated Town of Mamaroneck, the Village of Mamaroneck, and the Village of Larchmont. We are responsible for the associated recreation facilities, including the Hommocks Park Ice Rink, Hommocks Outdoor Swimming Pool Complex, Memorial Park, and the Carpino-Steffens Fields. Some leisure activities, like the aquatic programs at the Hommocks Pool, are available year-around - while others are offered seasonally.
During the summer, we operate day camp programs, including a pre-school camp, a full-day camp and a teen travel camp. In addition to the ice rink and outdoor swimming pool complex, there are 4 tennis courts/Pickleball court and two playgrounds at Memorial Park on Myrtle Blvd.
