Update Phase 3.0

In response to the Phase 3 recommendations, we have made the difficult decision to cancel basketball leagues this year. Thank you for continuing to support Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department athletics. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach us at athletics@raleighnc.gov. We appreciate your continued patience and we hope to see you on the court again soon.

A detailed list of the status of park facilities, amenities and programs is available here.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we determine what modifications are necessary to return safely!

Social Distancing Best Practices

Parks and open space provide necessary respite, especially during challenging times. We invite you to breathe in the fresh air and enjoy nature. To continue to enjoy Raleigh parks and greenways safely, we recommend you do the following:

  • Always keep at least 6 feet between you and others.
  • Visit the park or trails early in the morning or later in the day.
  • Walk, jog, hike, and bike in a single file on the trail.
  • When crossing a bridge on the trail, allow one group or trail user to pass at a time to maintain 6 feet distance. 
  • Avoid gathering in groups at trailheads or other areas.
  • Warn other greenway users when passing by calling out or using your bike bell.
  • When someone approaches you on the greenway, step to the side and let them pass.
  • To improve social distancing, consider visiting less busy trails or parks. See our Park Locator to find the park closest to you.
  • Always follow the CDC's personal hygiene guidance.
  • If you are exhibiting symptoms, do not visit the park or trails. However, people with COVID19 may not exhibit symptoms, so it is important to practice all of the above guidelines even if feeling well.

Thank you for being smart and safe, Raleigh!
