The Cabarrus County Active Living and Parks Department is home to three county-wide parks, two Senior Centers and forty-five school parks. Future plans for 190 acres purchased in Midland in 2009 will be to develop a passive park.
Classes, camps and workshops at our parks are geared toward environmental stewardship, sustainability, conservancy and nature education. The parks offer facilities for family reunions, weddings, company outings, and many other activities. It is where families and friends gather for a picnic, play tennis, miniature golf, softball, fish, paddle boat, swim, camp, and numerous other fun activities.
The Senior Centers provide recreational, educational and wellness activities for older adults. At the Centers, seniors can gather to meet friends for a game of cards, billiards, bocce, shuffleboard, and participate in a variety of classes and clubs. Seniors may enjoy classes such as line and ballroom dance, tai chi, sign language, and fitness. Dances, holiday celebrations, special events and health screenings are offered during the year.
"To enrich the quality of life for persons of all ages and abilities by providing high quality recreation, education, and social opportunities in harmony with natural resource preservation."
The Department administers a Matching Incentive Grant Program where civic; community and school groups apply for monies. The grants are used to construct or improve facilities on public land for community use.
