Parks and Recreation

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

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