Parks & Recreation

The Yadkin County Parks and Recreation Department was established in 1972 with the goal of providing activities, events, and facilities to meet the needs of the people of Yadkin County.

Today the Parks and Recreation Department has grown to include 4 unique parks and a blueway with three river access points. Future planning for parks and trails continues to be a priority.
