Parks and Recreation

Please note that Little River Park is closed until further notice.  

Zebulon Parks and Recreation Department works to enhance the lives of our citizens and visitors by providing beautiful parks, play opportunities, wellness programs, and educational opportunities. From sports leagues, fitness classes, art programs, travel experiences, educational presentations, summer camps, to the Zebulon Farm Fresh Market, there is something for everyone.

The Zebulon Parks and Recreation Department maintains and operates six public parks within the Town Of Zebulon. These parks contain walking trails, walking loops, athletic facilities, playgrounds, picnic shelters, a disc golf course, tennis courts, outdoor basketball courts, and natural areas.  Zebulon Parks and Recreation also manages the Zebulon Community Center which has a gymnasium, classrooms, exercise/ weight rooms, and an art room, all of which can be rented for family or business gatherings.

Our staff implements many exciting programs, activities, and events throughout the year with the purpose of bringing community members together to play, learn, and pursue healthy living. 

The Zebulon Farm Fresh Market is open every Saturday on the Zebulon Municipal Complex lawn from April through September.
