Franklin Parks and Recreation

Recreation is abundant in Franklin — woodlands, rivers, creeks and ponds provide for hunting, fishing and a number of water sports. Recreation can also be found on the ball fields, parks, swimming pools, tennis courts, a world-class YMCA and a USGA sanctioned golf course.


Southampton County's three navigable rivers, Meherrin, Nottoway and Blackwater, offer visitors a variety of water sports.

Boating … skiing … fishing … kayaking … canoeing … to name a few. The state maintains five public boat landings in the County. Our waterways support a wide variety of fish, such as bluegill, pickerel, white perch, channel & white catfish, rock bass and largemouth & smallmouth bass.

White tail deer are so plentiful that Southampton County ranks within the top ten in deer harvest in the state. Individuals and hunt clubs, alike, enjoy the bounty of the hunt in our spacious County. Other popular game include dove, quail and turkey.

Cypress Cove Country Club offers a USGA sanctioned 18-hole golf course, swimming pool, six lighted tennis courts, a golf pro shop and a clubhouse with dining facilities.
