Not familiar with the #OurWakeCountyParks Instagram contest? Last fall we challenged everyone to tag us @Wakegovparks and #OurWakeCountyParks with their best photos, showing us all the ways you love to enjoy our parks.  We received several hundred entries, but were only able to choose 34. Those 34 photos will be on display at Historic Oak View County Park as a temporary exhibit March 4th- May 31st.
