Pelham Parks & Recreation

The Town of Pelham Recreation Department offers extensive recreation programs for all ages that includes everything from piano and chess lessons to soccer, karate and adult rowing. 

The Town of Pelham maintains the Richard Daronco Townhouse as a community center with meeting spaces, Town Recreation & Senior Advocate Offices and the Pelham Childrens' Center, a daycare facility operated by a Pelham not-for-profit organization.  Located on Fifth Avenue in Pelham's downtown, the Townhouse (previously Redeemer Episcopal Church) was donated to the Town and named after the late Honorable Richard Daronco.

In addition to recreation programs run by the Town of Pelham, there are several community-based sports programs established and operated by volunteer boards, including:
Pelham Hockey Association, offering a hockey program for all ages; most children in the program learn to skate at an early age, begin the hockey clinic program by age 5, and join the "Pelham Mites" at age 6.  The program is operated out of the "Ice Hutch" on the Pelham border in Mount Vernon.
Pelham Recrational Soccer is a volunteer organization that offers a supportive, fun environment to develop children's interest in the sport.  There is also a travel soccer program for more competitive players.
