Frank Liske Park
Located in the central part of Cabarrus County, this beautiful 238-acre park is a former working farm for Stonewall Jackson Training School. The land was leased to the County for development, and the park was named in honor of Frank Liske, who worked at Stonewall Jackson Training School for 48 years and was instrumental in acquiring the land for lease from the state.
Relics of the Jackson Training School farm are still available for the public’s enjoyment, including a refurbished dairy barn and silo. The barn is a popular spot for gatherings. The park boasts four separate rental areas, including an enclosed heated and air-conditioned upper level in the barn. Park amenities include a 10-acre lake for fishing and paddle boating, picnic shelters, picnic sites, horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, playgrounds, and six lighted tennis courts. Additional amenities include an 11-field soccer complex with two lighted fields, a four-field lighted softball complex, walking and fitness trails, a nature trail and an 18 hole miniature golf course. The soccer complex is operated in cooperation with Charlotte Soccer Academy and the City of Concord Parks and Recreation Department.
Frank Liske Park is also managed as a wildlife and nature preserve.
The Barn serves as home base for the eight-week summer day camp, which hosts about 650 campers each year. Other activities include sports camps, nature camps and classes, tennis classes, nature workshops, road races and various community events. The softball and soccer complexes host league play and various tournaments throughout the year.
