Welcome from the Director
Welcome to the Town of Garner Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources’ main page. We hope you find the biannual brochure below full of interesting and exciting things that are happening in Garner. We hope that you and your family will utilize many of our award-winning parks and programs to maintain and increase healthy lifestyle opportunities.
Our parks, recreation facilities and the Garner Performing Arts Center offer great activities for ages 2 to 55+. Whether your interest is in fitness, athletics, camps, nature, cultural arts, special events or senior activities, we hope that you will take advantage of the endless benefits our programs provide.
I am very proud of our programs, facilities and special events, as well as the level of dedication each staff person (including those in Public Works and the Police Department) exhibits while working to successfully maintain the aesthetics and safety of our parks. We are honored to serve our citizens and will continue striving to give our very best service to patrons and visitors as we “Discover, Play and Celebrate.”
