We understand the desire to get outside or out of the home to enjoy this early spring weather. Our greenways and cemeteries remain open. While spending more time at home, there's more time to get outside or take a walk. Please use our social distancing guide as you enjoy the outdoors with others.
While focusing on our ongoing COVID-19 response, reduced or non-mandatory functions during these events seek to protect public and employee safety. The Town of Chapel Hill has closed all Parks and Recreation facilities, including parks, dog parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, tennis, volley ball and pickleball courts. All indoor recreation and aquatic facilities are closed. All recreation programs are canceled until further notice.
The Town of Chapel Hill is nationally regarded for its quality of life. Public parks and recreation are the gateways to a healthier, more livable community. In addition to our parks, trails, indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation offers a myriad of recreation programs and cultural activities for all ages and social backgrounds.
From instructions on how to register for programs, to a complete listing of facilities and operating hours, to a guide for volunteer services, facility rentals, and information about our park maintenance, our FAQs page is your go-to source for your questions.
