Bloomfield Parks & Recreation Programs

 

    The Bloomfield Parks & Recreation Department and its partners produce a wide variety of seasonal and year-round programs. In addition to the traditional programs, we also provide many special events throughout the calendar year.    We also provide many recreational and social opportunities for individuals with disabilities.  We provide self contained special needs programs and strive for all of our traditional offerings to provide full inclusion.  Our programs are advertised via our website, flyers in schools, Bloomfield Public Access Television WBMATV, The Independent Press, Bloomfield Life and the Bloomfield Pulse Facebook page.
