July is Park and Recreation Month in Vermont
With the support of Rep. Krasnow and fellow SB Legislators LaLonde, Hyman, Minier and Nugent, H.C.R. 22 recognizes July 2023 as Park and Recreation Month in Vermont and designates July 21st as Park and Recreation Professionals Day.
Indoor Recreation Facility
In December 2019, the South Burlington Recreation and Parks Committee made a recommendation to City Council proposing a new indoor recreation facility to be constructed at Veterans Memorial Park. As envisioned by this committee, the new facility would accommodate four high school basketball-sized courts for various net sports, with one reserved as turf field for soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey training needs. The facility will also include an indoor walking track and house the Recreation & Parks department staff.

The Recreation & Parks Committee is an advisory committee to the Recreation & Parks Department, made up of seven to nine volunteer citizens of South Burlington, who are appointed by the City Council.
All meetings are open to the public and are typically held on the 2nd Monday of the month at 5:00 pm at the City Hall Offices at 180 Market Street.
In March of 2000 voters approved the creation of a Conservation Fund; establishing a permanent tax in the amount of one cent on the annual city tax rate. The purpose of these funds is to purchase land and rights in land to preserve open land and natural areas in the city. In 2008 the voters approved to modify the Conservation Fund to authorize its original use and in addition allow the fund to purchase land devoted to recreation use in the city.
