Parks and Recreation

Having places to relax, play, and be active is important to people—so the measure of any community is the quality of parks, trails, playgrounds, and green spaces that residents have access to. In this regard, St. Stephen is thriving indeed, with an abundance of park riches. Our beautiful waterfront and newly renovated public wharf provide our residents and visitors with breathtaking, panoramic views of the St. Croix River and our neighbours in Calais. 

To request a rental of one of our green spaces, please complete a rental request form, email or go online to for more information.
