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 in Yadkin County.

Today the Parks and Recreation Department has grown to include 4 unique parks and a blue-way with three river access points. Future planning for parks and trails continues to be a priority. To learn more about the parks and blue-way explore the pages listed to your left or contact the Parks and Recreation Department.
