RECREATION

In 2014, the Town of Cumberland purchased Broad Cove Reserve, part of a former privately owned property. Broad Cove Reserve consists of 11 acres along Casco Bay with 2,200 feet of water frontage, 9 acres adjacent to Route 88, and an existing gravel roadway connecting these two parcels of land. This purchase allowed public water access, with beach and dock, for the town.

Val Halla Golf and Recreation Center, named the "Best Municipal Course" in Maine by Golf Digest has an excellent 18-hole course. Facilities include a driving range, putting greens, pro shop, and casual dining. Indoor golf is also available with six full swing simulators; professional lessons, individual tee times, couples' scrambles, and Sunday tournaments are included in the offered programs.
