Parks & Recreation Overview

The Town of Fuquay-Varina began developing its parks and recreation system more than thirty years ago with the acquisition of Falcon Park. Since that time, both the town and the park system have grown and changed dramatically.

Parks & Facilities

Presently, the Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for 21 park sites with more than 300 acres of land that contain playgrounds, picnic shelters, and athletic fields.
