Parks & Recreation


The mission of Pittsboro Parks is to enrich the lives of Pittsboro's residents through the creation of great public spaces, provision of recreational programming and the hosting of special events. In doing so, we foster sustainable economic development, support the arts, encourage healthy lifestyles, and enable deeper connections to nature.


We envision an interconnected and accessible system of vibrant public spaces, friendly neighborhood parks, thriving natural areas and diverse recreation opportunities that make our city a healthy, active, and beautiful place in which to live, work and play.
