Together with our community partners, we deliver recreational programs and services, and maintain and operate a variety of facilities such as municipal parks and sports fields, the Nor-Del Arena, Otterville Outdoor Pool, Opti-mist Splashzone and various banquet facilities.

We also work with several organizations, service clubs, sports teams and a myriad of groups to develop recreational infrastructure to enhance leisure opportunities in our community.


In November 2017 the Township of Norwich Council approved a Parks Master Plan to assist the municipality in prioritizing the short and long-term needs for the parks system. This will help faciliatate budget preparation for park expansion / improvements planning over the long term.
