A Park For All Reasons

This large park - almost 100 acres - offers a wide variety of opportunities for sports and relaxation. There are four baseball fields (plus batting cages), 12 tennis courts, four soccer fields, two volleyball courts and a full-court basketball court. Children can enjoy two playgrounds and even a Panthers-inspired Kid Zone football training area. For walkers and joggers, there are miles of paths.

If you're not feeling quite so enthusiastic, the park also has a seven-acre lake, five outdoor shelters with grills and lots of green space for picnicking. A demonstration garden, supported by North Carolina Extension Service Master Gardeners displays native shrubs and a multi-seasonal display of plants and flowers. During the summer, a series of jazz concerts is also held.
