Parks & Recreation

The mission of the Parks and Recreation Department is to promote the quality of life by serving the community's needs for leisure, parks, information and referral, by providing quality and affordable recreational programs and services to all residents.

Along with offering many recreational programs, we also have two county parks located in Franklinton and Pilot NC. They offer different amenities for county residents.  Franklinton Park has a baseball and softball field, picnic shelter that can be reserved for outings, a walking trail, a quarter mile track and a soccer field.  Pilot Park offers a baseball and softball field, walking trail, and a picnic shelter for rental.
