On October 8th, a story aired on the NBC Nightly News about the safety of crumb rubber used in synthetic turf fields.  In response to this news story, the landscape architect who worked with the Recreation Department on the synthetic turf field project at Lincoln Park indicated that the evidence from reliable scientific studies by state and federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), suggests no correlation between synthetic turf and human health issues. 

The Synthetic Turf Council also released a statement after the report aired on the news.  Additional information from the Synthetic Turf Council on this issue can be found by going to this website.

Description of Services:

The Lexington Recreation Department is where Lexington residents can participate in year-round, unique, quality programs. Led by excellent, qualified instructors, these programs offer participants affordable opportunities for a wide variety of passive and active recreation. The goal of the Recreation Department is to provide recreational facilities and programs for Lexington residents. Please let us know about barriers that prevent participation. We are proud of our work with members of the community in creating exciting and successful programs. Please help us as we try to expand our ability to provide meaningful and accessible recreational opportunities for all. Your suggestions are welcomed.

Enterprise Fund:

The Lexington Recreation Department has operated as an Enterprise Fund since 1991.  Recreation programs are self-supported by setting user fees to cover all expenses.  The Director of Recreation, through the Recreation Committee, sets fees with the approval of the Board of Selectmen.  The Recreation Department operating budget supports staff that manages and delivers recreation programs along with the supplies needed to operate those programs.  Surplus revenues generated through the Recreation Enterprise (Recreation and Pine Meadows Golf Club) helps fund Capital Improvement Projects and financially supports other Town Services including those provided by the Department of Public Works to the aquatic facilities, tennis courts, and golf course, and payment of $100,000 per year towards the Lincoln Park debt.
