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. Presently, the Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for fifteen park sites with more than 200 acres of land that contain playgrounds, picnic shelters, and athletic field. In the fall of 2012, the department will begin offering youth sports programming to include t-ball, baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, flag football, tackle football, cheerleading and dance. With 30 various-sized soccer fields, 7 multi-purpose fields, 11 baseball fields Council Gym and the Community Center, the Parks & Recreation Department is well-equipped to handle a first-rate youth sports program. The youth sports program joins a full range of established programming in fitness, education and recreation currently offered at the Community Center. Parks and Recreation is also responsible for organizing community events such as Celebrate Fuquay-Varina, the Independence Day Celebration, Annual Egg Hunt, and several Christmas Events.
We strive to provide residents and visitors with beautifully maintained and accessible open space, athletic facilities and playgrounds as well as plan and execute community events to promote the Town as a great place to live, visit and do business.
