​​​​Throughout the Town of Newmarket, residents can enjoy a variety of outdoor recreational areas, including community and neighbourhood parks and parkettes. There are over 45 active parks and open spaces and over 800 acres of parkland in Newmarket! Picnic areas, trails, playgrounds, soccer pitches, ball diamonds, tennis courts and basketball courts can be found in various parks throughout the Town. As part of the Town's commitment to environmental sustainability, pesticides (insecticides, herbicides and fungicides) have been eliminated and culturally friendly practices have been adopted.

Winter activities in Parks 

Residents and community members are reminded that Newmarket parks are not maintained for winter activities​ (skiing, tobogganing​, skibob, snowboarding)​. Please take extra caution and use at your own risk. 

Take extra caution around lakes, rivers, streams and stormwater ponds 

Residents are reminded to take caution around local bodies of water such as Fairy Lake, the Holland River and storm water ponds. Although ice may appear thick enough to venture out on, it may not be. Use extreme caution and advise your children that ice is unsafe for skating or playing.


Newmarket has over 65 stormwater management ponds in Town which stores and treats rainwater. It's designed to prevent flooding, erosion and improve the quality of water before it is gradually released back into the nearest stream or river. Please take extra caution around all bodies of water and remind children to not play in the area. Stay off of any stormwater pond as they are not safe for use. 



The ponds may look safe, but it's what's below the surface that makes them different from regular ponds. As a result, water flow and water levels can fluctuate quickly without warning. 

Activities like skating, fishing, swimming or tobogganing are not allowed on any body of water in Newmarket. Please do not dump unwanted fish or aquarium pets in the stormwater ponds. Let's all do our part and protect the environment from the negative effects of stormwater.
