Park News: 


While we adhere to North Carolina's Stay at Home order, Wake County parks and preserves are still open. Visitors must comply with all regulations set forth in the proclamation, including gathering with no more than 10 people and maintaining physical distance of at least six feet from any other person.

At Wake County’s eight parks and two preserves, listed below, we’re working to make this possible by limiting the number of people allowed in the park at one time. If our gate is closed or cones are blocking the entrance, that means we’ve reached capacity. Parks that are run by towns or cities may be operating differently—please reach out to them directly before visiting their parks. 

Failure to follow the social distancing guidelines set forth could result in the closure of the parks. Please do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We’re all in this together.

Special note about programming:

Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space is extending all closures (educational centers, bathrooms and playgrounds) and program/shelter/event cancelations through May 31. In the meantime, be sure to check out our digital programming at wakegov.com/parks/fromhome.
