The Borden Parks and Recreation is charged with the development and fundraising of Borden Memorial Park and are governed by the Village of Borden. We have a long term plan for what the park should look like in the future and are open to ideas. In 2012 we placed a 3.5 Km walking trail within the park. With the help of donations from the community, we recently installed two home run fences at the ball diamonds. Our next plan is to build an outdoor event center that will encompass the canteen. Part of our bigger picture is to have a bridge over Shepard's Creek to connect the trail for a shorter distance on the trail.
 
We are looking for associate members and board members. The difference between an associate member and a board member is that associate members do not need to come to the regular meetings, which are held on the last Thursday of each month. They still have input into the park development however, they do not get a vote at the board table. An associate member can be in charge of a portion of an event, for example the canteen or in charge of ball for Diefenbaker Days. A board member will have vote at the table as well as having input into the development of the park and may be in charge of an event at a function.
