Healthy for Life Wellness Initiatives

The mission of the Town of Burgaw is to provide exceptional services to its citizens and to be proactive and look for innovative ways of improving the quality of life and economy of the town.  We envision a healthy community where all residents lead active lives, have access to nutritious foods, and live in safety.  As a result, the Town has identified specific goals for our Parks and Recreation Initiatives over the next 5-10 years, including promoting healthy lifestyle choices for all citizens.

A major component of our efforts to achieve this goal is the Burgaw Healthy for Life wellness initiative.  This initiative includes several community programs, including the Osgood Canal Greenway and Trail project, recreation classes at the Community House, ongoing Safe Routes to School initiatives, and bicycle and pedestrian planning efforts.

The newly created Parks and Recreation Board is also charged with establishing community recreational programs and special activities, so keep your eyes open for new recreational and wellness opportunities!
