The Community Recreation Director

Many communities employ Recreation Directors {aka “recreation rock stars”} to oversee the many programs, spaces and facilities, and events that contribute to our quality of life and wellness. Recreation Directors are typically hired by the municipality and take on several roles, one often being a “community builder”, who liaises and supports the many volunteer groups that make sport, culture and recreation activities happen. They can take on many different titles, such as Facility Manager, Programmer, and Leisure Services Manager.

We have seen an increase in the development of these positions in the past couple of years in the south east. This video showcases two communities who have recently created these positions to meet an identified need in the community. Check it out!

If you are a community that is exploring a new recreation position, and you would like to learn more, contact us! Our South East District staff team offers workshops, tools and resources that can help you on your way to getting your very own recreation rock star!
