Our town has a recreation committee consisting up to seven residents of the town - Martha Wentworth (chair), Barbara Crosier, Raigan York, Ed Brownell, Kevin Freeman, Todd Dunn, and Megan Marquis. The group meets on an the fourth Thursday of the month. Scheduled meetings are posted on the town calendar, found on the home page.

Unfortunately, we do not offer programs on an ongoing basis.  We have volunteers that run a soccer recreation program in the fall  for Pre K- 6th grade and a basketball program in the winter for PreK - 6th grade. The China Rec web site can be found here. The youth baseball and softball (for ages 5 through 12) falls under the China Youth League. The president is Todd Dunn. Youth football is run independently from the town and is for K - high school.

Please remember all programs are run independently of the town.

We do not have public beach facilities in China.  There is a boat launch at the northern and southern end of China lake as well as one in the town of Vassalboro. 

There is also a boat launch for Three Mile Pond, off Route 3 in Vassalboro.

Our recreation fields are located between the China Middle and China Primary Schools at 763 Lakeview Drive.  We installed ball field lights which are used by youth baseball and softball, adult softball, youth soccer and the youth football program.
