Park News: 

NOW HIRING!
We're looking for TWO part-time Park Aides, one focused on Operations and Maintenance, to be based at Crowder County Park, and the other on Education and Visitor Services, to be based at Historic Yates Mill County Park, for 16 plus hours per week. Download the application here. 

COVID-19 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.

Shelter Rentals and Park Use Agreements
As of October 1, shelter rentals and other park use agreements are available. Gatherings are limited to 50 people per the governor's executive order.

Playgrounds 
Playgrounds at parks managed by Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space are open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to maintain physical distance, wear masks or cloth face coverings, and wash or sanitize their hands often. Capacity limits are posted near each playground.

Park Capacity
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.

Help Continue to Slow the Spread of COVID-19
Wake County park and preserve visitors must comply with guidelines set forth by the State of North Carolina, including gathering with no more than 50 people, maintaining physical distance of at least six feet from any other person, and wearing a mask or cloth face covering when social distancing is not possible.
 
The following restrictions will remain in place at Wake County parks and preserves through at least October 31:
  • Park centers are closed.
  • Park programs and events are cancelled.
  • Special operations, such as boat rentals, group camping and lodge rental, are not available.
As a reminder, 24/7 digital programming is available at wakegov.com/parks/fromhome.
