For more than 40 years, Alamance Parks has worked to improve the quality of life of Alamance County residents. Through our parks and programs, we encourage healthy lifestyles for children and adults, offer inclusive activities for all of our citizens, and provide access to the natural world. Alamance Parks has three major focus areas: the outdoors, community, and youth athletics. We provide access to the outdoors through a variety of parks and trails, serve our community through two community centers and our Special Populations programs, and offer year-round athletics options for community youth. Our mission is to provide parks, trails, and programs that inspire visitors and welcome all participants.
