Wake County Parks
COVID-19 Service Update

The health and safety of our visitors and staff remain the top priorities for Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space. As Wake County follows the state’s phased approach to lift COVID-19 restrictions, we are also working to safely reopen park services in phases over the coming months.

Wake County parks and preserves have been open throughout the pandemic. Visitors must comply with guidelines set forth by the state, including gathering with no more than 50 people and maintaining physical distance of at least six feet from any other person. External restrooms and water fountains are open.

Measures to limit the number of people allowed in the park at one time remain in place. If a gate is closed or cones are blocking the entrance, that means the park has reached capacity. Parks that are run by towns or cities may be operating differently—please reach out to them directly before visiting their parks.

The following restrictions will remain in place at Wake County parks and preserves through at least September 30:

  • Playgrounds and park centers are closed.
  • Park programs and events are canceled.
  • Special operations, such as boat rentals, group camping and lodge rental, are not available.
  • Shelter rentals and other park use agreements are canceled.
  • Camps are canceled through the end of 2020.

As of 5 p.m. June 26, the State of North Carolina has mandated that people must wear masks or cloth face coverings when in public and unable to adhere to social distancing guidelines. This applies at Wake County’s parks and preserves.

In the meantime, be sure to check out our digital programming. It's Wake Parks from Home!
