Prescott is home to over 85 acres of green space, including RiverWalk Park, Centennial Park (home to the municipal beach, pool, and tennis courts), the Heritage River Trail (alongside the War of 1812-era Fort Wellington National Historic Site).
The Town of Prescott offers athletic programming, facilities, beautiful green spaces, and trails to help residents and visitors of all ages lead healthy, active, engaged and community-connected lives.
