Programs & Facilities
Fuquay-Varina’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department oversees a wide-range of programs and facilities, including management and maintenance of the local parks. The department’s offices are located at the Fuquay-Varina Community Center, which hosts exercise classes and offers conference and meeting space.
Carroll Howard Johnson Environmental Education Park is Fuquay-Varina’s newest park, and is the first park in southern Wake County with a major emphasis on environmental education. The park’s 28 acres of rolling land (with 70 feet of elevation change) slopes along several minor ridges and streams to Kenneth Branch, a permanent creek. Currently, the park includes 2.5 miles of walking trails, and another 1.2 miles will be added. The park area also includes an amphitheater, five overlook areas and five footbridges. Programs offered at Carroll Howard Johnson Environmental Education Park include wildflower hikes, owl prowls, stream studies, bird watching and plant identification.
The Fuquay-Varina Athletic Association (FVAA) promotes youth sports and activities throughout the Fuquay-Varina area, and works closely with the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department to offer year-round programs.
