Killingworth’s parks are run by a seven-member commission appointed by the Board of Selectmen. The Park and Recreation Commission plans the development of municipal recreation facilities for the children, youth, and adults of the town; establishes and maintains those facilities; and supervises and adopts rules for their use. The commission works closely with the Haddam-Killingworth Recreation Authority.

Killingworth currently has playing fields at four locations

  • Sheldon Park: baseball and softball fields, tennis/pickleball courts, basketball court, horseshoe pits, fishing, adult fitness track/equipment, playground, pavilion
  • Rocco M. Reale Memorial Field: Little League Baseball
  • Bethke Field: softball/baseball practice field
  • Eric W. Auer Killingworth Recreational Park: multi-purpose fields, playground, disc golf, access to trails for hikers and riders

The Park and Recreation Commission normally meets on the second Monday of each month.
