The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department is taking all reasonable precautions to best promote the health and safety of our community. Public health is a shared responsibility, and it is one we take very seriously. We are continuing to follow local, state and national public health updates and assessing our role in curbing the spread of COVID-19. We urge participants in all our programs to monitor their own health, stay home if they are sick or not feeling well, wash their hands often, wear a mask, and take appropriate physical distancing measures. These actions are vital to slowing the spread of the virus and protecting the most vulnerable in our community. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

For more information contact Program Specialist Shawn Monday or Recreation Manager Cindi King.
