Athol Open Space and Recreation Committee

“Make Athol Better For People and Nature”
-A A +A


The Town of Athol Open Space and Recreation Committee is in full swing working to update the town’s Open Space and Recreation Plan. The plan will help determine what the town does in the next 7 years to improve our parks, beaches, playgrounds, ball fields, and natural areas available for wildlife watching, hiking, fishing, and more. 

With an updated Open Space and Recreation Plan, the town will be eligible to apply for grants to help preserve the rural character of Athol and address the community's desire for recreation areas.

The committee needs your help.  It has put together a public survey to gather the communities opinions to make sure the committee works on issues most important to the town.  The best way to complete the survey is online at:  There will also be printed copies available at the Athol Public Library and the Athol Town Hall.
