Somerset Recreation Department

Welcome to the Parks and Recreation Department for Somerset, MA!

On this website you can find up-to-date information about our programs being offered for individuals of all ages.  Check out all of the information about Pierce Beach and Playground, Waterfront Park, and our other parks throughout the website!

From the Desk of the Recreation Director:                              

 It is hard to believe that two months have already flown by in 2014. But that means that we are closer to spring and that much closer to the warm weather of summer.

Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate with our plans to do outdoor ice skating at the Water Department. But we will re-visit this throughout the year and hopefully have plans in place for next winter. However, other activities have gotten off to a good start including Zumba and Yoga and dates for the spring will be finalized shortly. 


There is still room in the After-School Program for children in grades K-5 for the remainder of the school year. The program consists of time for homework and homework help, daily activities that include gym time, music, arts & crafts, board games, and creative programming. The fee for the program is $16 per day and a reduced fee for a second and third child. 



The After-School Program will continue at Chace St. School through the remainder of the school year.  If you would like to see more of what we do there, pop in for a visit and take advantage of our "MUST SEE PASS". The Must See Pass allows you to have your child attend one session of the After-School Program the 1st and 2nd week  March. Pre-registration is required.  This "MUST SEE PASS"  is only for those interested in our After-School program
FEBRUARY SCHOOL VACATION PROGRAM - "Fun in Fitness" was a big hit where boys and girls in grades K-5 participated in a 4 day program at the Chace St. school with special guest instructors Doug Chapman from the USTA on tennis and Jessica Bernier of the Smith School Dance provided instruction on hip hop dance. Other activities included bowling at Holiday Lanes and an introduction to volleyball from Karen Mendes, former Providence College star and coach, along with a few Somerset Berkeley Regional High School volleyball players.
