For the health and safety of our staff and visitors, Mecklenburg County is limiting access to many county facilities due to the current COVID-19 health concern.  All Recreation, Nature, Aquatic Centers as well as playgrounds and other mass gathering spots are closed until further notice. At this time we are cancelling upcoming programs, events, and parties.  We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again once this health concern has passed.
