Loyalist Township Parks
There are numerous parks located throughout Loyalist Township. These parks vary from quiet green spaces and beautiful waterfront to sports fields and playgrounds. Ball fields and soccer fields are available for rent.
Bath Pickleball Courts
The new Bath Pickleball Courts are open. Pickleball started in Bath with indoor play in 2013 at the Bath Public School, moved to one of the tennis courts the following year and now Bath is home to four designated lit pickleball courts and one designated lit tennis court.
If you are new to the sport, pickleball was invented as a family backyard pastime but quickly became popular among adults as a fun game for players of all levels. The game is easy to learn and blends engaging aspects of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Its popularity is soaring, making it one of North America's fastest growing sports.
Residents and friends of Loyalist Township have the opportunity to create a lasting memorial to a loved one through the donation of a public tree or bench in one of our parks or open spaces.
Your donation of a tree will add to the beauty of our public spaces while a bench provides a comfortable resting place. Please consider a contribution towards beautification while creating a lasting tribute to a special person.
