Huntington’s Department of Parks and Recreation offers a wide variety of recreational programs throughout the year for all ages, providing approximately 100 different leisure activities that range from sailing to ice-skating. The town operates numerous docks, boat ramps, seventy-two parks, eight beaches, three marinas, one eighteen- hole golf course, an Olympic size ice rink, a fifty-meter swimming pool and a rifle range.
