                      WAKE COUNTY PARKS

 

Wake County’s first park, 520-acre Lake Crabtree, opened in 1988.  Today, Wake County boasts a total of 11 parks and nature preserves, as well as 62.5 miles of trails and greenways.

Wake County Parks provide many recreational and educational opportunities.  Its greenways create a network of bicycling and walking trails, enabling us to choose

alternate means of transportation other than cars, and encourage activities such as jogging or simply walking in the woods.

Its open spaces contain a wide variety of plants and animals which we can observe and enjoy in all of its parks, preserves, and dedicated open spaces.

Each of our parks and preserves are truly unique and present experiences that are different from those of all of the other parks.
