Mauldin prides itself on its quality of life and nothing exemplifies that more than the recreation opportunities and facilities made available to the community. The Mauldin Recreation Department provides various opportunities to join a team, enjoy the outdoors, stay healthy and interact with others. We offer programs and activities for all ages and skill levels. Another staple of the Mauldin community is its strong youth athletic programs.

Events

The Mauldin Recreation Department also participates and helps organize other family events and activities to benefit the community. The Mauldin Miracle League calls Sunset Park its home and provides baseball for children with disabilities. Sunset Park is also the home of the Mauldin Maulers, which is a wheelchair softball team for adults. The Maulers host an annual tournament that brings teams from around the country into the city of Mauldin. Mauldin has also hosted games and tournaments for the growing international sports of Rugby and Cricket.

The recreation department assists in the organization of the Veterans Day and Memorial Day services at the Mauldin Veterans Memorial each year. The most popular event each year in the City of Mauldin is the annual Easter Egg Drop. This event takes place at Sunset Park and brings thousands of participants each year to Mauldin.

Parks

The City of Mauldin offers five parks for everyone’s enjoyment. These parks offer playing fields, walking paths, playgrounds and shelters. The shelters are a popular attraction for birthday parties, picnics and other celebrations. The shelters can easily be rented by calling the recreation department.
