This summer, the Children Building Better Communities organization, is looking for children to join their Litter Patrol.




As a member of the Litter Patrol, you will choose an area to keep clean all summer long. It can be a section of your neighborhood, a playground, a road near your home, any area that you think needs special attention. Your only responsibility is keeping the area clean as best that you can all summer long. If you would like to join the Litter Patrol, email mokiesnorthattleboro@gmail.com for more information and to register for an area.

Meet Sweet Pea, the pony, and Sadie, the donkey, WWI Park and Zoo's newest additions!


Thanks to Rick DiGiacomo, owner of the Holman Insurance Agency, Inc in Attleboro, MA for giving The Attleboro Zone

N. Attleboro Park & Recreation Dept is much more than playgrounds and programs

The Department of Parks and Recreation is much more than playgrounds and programs. The Department is responsible for 28 sights, memorials, and parks. They manage over 200 acres of property.
