Welcome to Port Hawkesbury

With the growing number of soccer players in our community, a request has been made to have the football goal posts removed from the football/soccer field to allow a safer space for soccer use.

We are looking for community feedback on this topic.  Presently we do not have organized football being played in our community but perhaps there is interest in it being developed, or maybe its not likely.  What do you think?  We would appreciate your input, as your opinion is valued.  Please leave feedback on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TownOfPortHawkesbury or email: rentals@townofph.ca
