Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources

Summer is here and things are heating up in Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources! During the month of July, catch a flick under the stars at Koka Booth's Movies by Moonlight, sponsored by WakeMed. Baseball is in full swing July 29-31 as the USA Baseball National Training Facility in Cary hosts the 17U/18U Cup. And, come August, we’re excited to double the fun at Lazy Daze, which will now be a two-day festival. There is so much to do this summer and I hope all of you take advantage of the Town’s programs, events and festivals. I plan on enjoying the shade canopy of the greenways as I get out in the evenings for daily walks. And something we are all very excited about is that we are going for the Gold! Check out the video and links below.
