Get Active & Join the Fun

No matter what season of the year, Saline is always buzzing with festivals, fairs, parades and a host of athletic and recreational activities.

Saline comes alive in spring with The Taste of Saline – a celebration of Saline’s unique history as well as our local culinary, artistic and musical talents. Summer sets the stage for great music, food and entertainment at the Saline Summer Music Series, the Celtic Festival and Summerfest. We celebrate the bounty of the fall season with Oktoberfest, and wintertime sparkles in Saline with the annual holiday parade and Winterfest. Craft shows, farmers’ markets, antiques markets, sporting events, cultural events and concerts, Movies in the Park and much more round out the year, and we invite you to come join the fun!

The Saline Recreation Center is a wonderful and affordable community resource with two indoor pools, exercise and weight rooms, multiple indoor and outdoor courts and a variety of fitness classes, leagues and fun community activities. In addition, Saline High School’s expansive sports complex, stadium and aquatics center play host to numerous sporting events and tournaments throughout the year.

If you’re looking to enjoy the great outdoors, visit any one of our 12 existing neighborhood and community parks. They feature plenty of lush green space, play structures, picnic areas and shelters, biking and walking trails, dog parks, sport fields and courts, boat launch ramps, restrooms and other amenities. Coming soon is an exciting new addition to Saline, the development of a new Salt Springs Park along the beautiful Saline River, which will feature Saline’s recently rediscovered natural salt springs while also offering some intriguing peeks into Saline’s well-seasoned past with educational and interpretive displays.
