The Madison Recreation Department provides a variety of activities, special events, and athletics for a wide-range of ages. The Borough of Madison Parks Department maintains all of the many Borough parks, playgrounds and athletic fields. Borough facilities include little league baseball and softball fields, nature trails, picnic areas and playgrounds. Lighted facilities include Dodge Field, which has a baseball/football field and two basketball courts. Memorial Park has a soccer field and a separate area for outdoor ice skating in the winter and practice area for soccer and football in the fall and for soccer and lacrosse in the spring.

The Madison Recreation programs also use many of the school facilities for its sports programs. Lighted facilities on Board of Education property include 6 lighted tennis courts at Madison High School and lights at the Green Village Road School field, which is used for soccer practice in the fall.
