Public parks and recreation are the gateways to a healthier, more livable community.

At Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation, we continue to expand our efforts in making a positive change in the health and wellness in Chapel Hill and Orange County.

The Town of Chapel Hill is nationally regarded for its quality of life. In addition to our parks, open green spaces, and a myriad of indoor and outdoor recreational facilities, Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation offers recreational programs and cultural activities for all ages and social backgrounds.

Everyone needs the opportunity for self-enrichment, adventure, fellowship and quiet reflection. At Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Department, we understand these needs and are dedicated to providing cultural and recreational opportunities in a safe and inviting environment.
