The Town of Chapel Hill is celebrating “200 Hundred Years of Getting Better, Together” with a series of programs, projects, and celebrations this fall. The theme of the series highlights Town departments, community organizations, and individuals that have made – and continue to make – our community vibrant. 

Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation is featuring a Throwback Digital Slide Show and #ThrowbackThursday Social Media Series over the next eight weeks.

A Throwback Digital Slide Show

See how Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Department has played an important role in our vibrant community through our upcoming #ThrowbackThursday digital slideshow and social media series! 

We’ll feature a unique slide show, Sept. 26 through Nov. 21. Enjoy watching some of the historic and memorable moments from Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation’s early beginnings in the 1970’s.

While viewing the slide show on our 50’ digital signs at each of our five locations, as well as our #ThrowbackThursday Series on our facebook page, you’ll recognize just how much progress we’ve made in this collaborative and innovative organization we call Parks and Recreation.

See the transformation of our Department from past to present; and meet the staff who garnered a vision to create a healthier, more livable community, preserve our natural resources and strive for social equity and inclusiveness in Chapel Hill.
