John V. Faggione
Director of Recreation
134 Pike Street
The Port Jervis Recreation Department’s function is to provide the community with recreational and healthy activities for all age groups. The Director of Recreation advises the Recreation Commission, Common Council, and Mayor on all activities that are taking place and on future recreational programs. It is the Director’s job to keep the City of Port Jervis updated with new recreational technology and new programming.
The Recreation Department oversees the city’s two playgrounds and parks, the municipal beach (West End Beach) and the Youth Community Center. West End Beach is located on the beautiful Delaware River and is supervised by certified lifeguards. The Youth Community Center, opened year round, provides our youth with after-school activities, as well as plenty of summer programming. The director works closely with all other city departments, the Port Jervis School District and county agencies in an effort to improve the quality of life for the community. Additional funding is provided by the Office of Children and Family Services and the Orange County Youth Bureau.
