It will soon be time to shake off the winter blues and Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation (FCPR) is here to help!
Last summer, FCPR broke ground on the Skateboard Park at Rowan Park. The Skateboard Park is funded by the bond referendum passed in 2016 by citizens to pay for parks and recreation enhancements and improvements. The Skateboard Park, a welcomed addition for many skateboard enthusiasts in Fayetteville and Cumberland County, is expected to open this spring.
In addition to the Skateboard Park, FCPR plans to open the Splash Pad at Gilmore Therapeutic Recreation Center (TRC) in early May and the Lake Rim Aquatic Center in late May. The Splash Pad at Gilmore TRC will be the 10th FCPR splash pad and the Lake Rim Aquatic Center will be the 4th FCPR pool.
FCPR is excited to soon offer additional cultural arts activities through a music education program. This new program will allow us an opportunity to reach citizens throughout our community who have interests outside of typical recreation programming, and will provide them chances to develop their artistic skills and talents.
I encourage you to visit http://fcpr.us/register to view upcoming programs and enroll in activities. You’ll find that there is something for everyone and online registration is simple and convenient. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Director, Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation
