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.

Closing Notices

Kayak/Canoe Rentals Unavailable: Due to low water levels, kayak and canoe rentals for Rock Creek at Cedarock Park are unavailable.

Altamahaw Paddle Access Closure: The dam at Altamahaw Paddle Access is at risk of failure. This access will remain closed until repairs are complete. 

Paddle accesses downstream are open, including Shallow Ford, Indian Valley, Great Bend Park, and Glencoe Paddle Accesses. In the event of a dam failure, water levels will rise quickly and create dangerous conditions. Paddle at your own risk and stay aware of changing conditions.

To avoid this risk, use the paddle accesses south of I-40/85 including Graham Paddle Access, Swepsonville River Park, Saxapahaw Lake Paddle Access, Saxapahaw Mill Race Paddle Access or Union Bridge Paddle Access.
