Recreation Programs, Events and Facilities
Information about recreation programs, events and facilities for Port Williams and other communities in the county are available through the Kings County Recreation Guide which is published quarterly. The 2017 Winter Guide (events from January to mid-May) is available in paper format in many locations including the Village Office and the library. Just the Port Williams pages (the whole document was too large to load) can also be downloaded here.
