Dover’s community association offers a number of activities to residents. Regular game nights, featuring pool, darts, and shuffleboard in the community centre pub are popular. Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, before and after school programs, jellybean dances, indoor and outdoor soccer, t-ball, and hockey are also facilitated by the community centre. 
Dover hosts a number of annual special events, including an Easter party, a Halloween part, Breakfast with Santa and Dover Days. Dover Days, held on the first weekend in June, include a parade complete with floats, a carnival, games, rides and a petting zoo. Dance and event nights are also held in connection with St. Patrick’s Day and New Years Eve. In addition to these activities, the community association also seeks to improve the area. A new park was recently established, complete with 12 beach volleyball courts, a water fountain, benches, and a pathway. There are plans to develop a baseball diamond and soccer field as well.
