Chatham Borough Recreation is committed to providing a broad range of recreational opportunities. Many 
Chatham Recreation Programs and activities are offered jointly with Chatham Township and others working in conjunction with Chatham based "Clubs." 

Activities that are offered jointly with Chatham Township or with a Chatham based "Club" are all listed, with information, on the Joint Chatham Recreation website at chathamrecreation.org. Those activities include: Baseball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Cross Country, Field Hockey, Flag Football, Football, Lacrosse, Skiing, Soccer, Softball, Special Needs Programs, Summer Camps, Track, Wrestling and Adult Basketball, Volleyball and Softball. Activities offered, to our residents, are a success due to the cooperation of volunteers who give their time to our community.

Chatham Borough continues to administer its Borough-owned tennis courts, municipal pool, playgrounds and parks. 

Chatham Borough participates in McArp (Morris County Adaptive Recreation Program), is offered Golf Permits to the Millburn Par 3 Golf Course and assists with funding for the Senior Center of the Chathams.
