Algonquin's Park system consists of 21 parks, and 2 open space, free play areas.
 
Between all parks and play spaces we have :
  • 12 ball diamonds
  • 9 pavilion/picnic shelters
  • 21 playgrounds
  • 1 pool
  • 15 basketball courts
  • 19 multi-purpose fields for football and soccer
  • 4 gazebos
  • 6 tennis courts
  • 12 picnic areas
  • 2 artificial outdoor ice rinks (seasonal)
  • 2 sledding hills
  • 2 sand volleyball courts


Our Parks & forestry crews mow 64 sites a week during mowing season which consists of over 230 acres.  Our sports fields are mowed twice a week during the playing season.

We empty 73 trash cans 2 to 3 times a week, and clean site litter from courts and pavilion surfaces 2 to 3 times a week.  This doesn't include separate issues of vandalism, broken playground equipment, site littering, illegal dumping and turf quality.

We have 5 public restroom facilities which are cleaned 2 to 3 times a week.

All 21 playgrounds are certified monthly.

We water all village planter areas at least once a week during growing season.
