The Mission of the Candle Lake Parks and Recreation Board is to enhance the quality of life in our Resort Village by providing and maintaining quality parks, trails and green spaces, offering a range of innovative and accessible programming, and providing opportunities for physical activity, social interaction and community involvement.




In Candle Lake we have increased our efforts in the promotion of recreational programs that contribute to a healthy active community and help to enhance our quality of life.
Our Vision is to create a healthy lifestyle and activities to enhance Candle Lake through the development of sports, recreation, active living, parks and wildlife programs by partnering with people and community groups of Candle Lake, and The Saskatchewan Parks And Recreation Association (SPRA).
1.  Building awareness and direction for programs to promote healthy living.
2.  Developing and maintaining sports programs.
3.  Developing and maintaining recreational programs.
4.  Developing and maintaining cultural programs.
5.  Developing and enhancing walking, cycling and ski trails.
6.  Developing and enhancing all public reserves into parks and / or green areas for the betterment of our community.

Our group of volunteers manage the BALL DIAMONDS AND PLAYGROUNDS.  We are a group that helps to promote community awareness and provides the community with information of the local events hosted throughout the community.  We are all volunteers that dedicate our time and energy to make this a great place to live and play. 

Our Rec Board is always looking for new members to join us as we have two positions on the board that are open, so if you are able to donate some of your time we would welcome you with open arms.    We have meetings only once a month on the 2nd Thursday of the Month at 1:15 pm in the Village Office Chambers. The meetings are usually 2 hours long and we do not expect you to volunteer at every event that the Parks and Rec Board hosts as we do like to spread the events around with the members. 

Phone Peggy Watt ( P & R Assistant ) at 960-3568 for rental information for the hall and ball diamond usage.
