About Us

ECSD LogoThe Eliot Community Service Department has existed since July 1997. Prior to 1997, the department was a volunteer Parks and Recreation Committee, operating on a very limited budget. In this short time the department has seen tremendous growth with program expansion and capital improvement projects.

Currently ECSD services nearly 4,000 individuals through involvement with over 150 programs and events throughout the year. The staff at the ECSD have created well over 100 programs and special events that serve nearly 4,000 people. Our staff continually strive to meet the needs of the community from children through senior citizens.

Our mission

The mission of the Eliot Community Service Department is to enrich the community through quality recreation programs, parks and facilities; promote healthy, active lifestyles; and respond to the recreation and leisure needs of residents with professionalism and dedication. The ECSD provides recreation and leisure programs for toddlers through senior citizens, operates summer and before/after-school care (KidsPLAY) for youth, and manages the parks and recreational facilities in Eliot.
