Cary brings home the Gold! That's right! We won! Cary has been named the 2016 Gold Medal Award winner for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management. The American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration (AAPRA), in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), through the Gold Medal Awards program, honors communities that demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development, and agency recognition. This award belongs to the entire Cary community. The citizens have invested incredibly in this Town and continue to do so on a daily basis. To see why we brought home the Gold, watch the video below and see if you can spot yourself making Cary shine!



We may still have plenty of cold days ahead, but our Winter/Spring 2018 program guide is full of activities to keep you warm and entertained! Look for your hard copy in libraries, the Chamber of Commerce, or any Town of Cary staffed facility.  Or, view it online.  Come laugh, learn, and play with us! 

Our School's Out 2018 camp guide is now available!  You can view it online, or look for printed copies of the guide at Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Staffed Facilities, Town Hall, grocery stores, and public libraries in Cary.  School's Out contains a variety of full and half day camps, workshops, classes, and clinics for students in both traditional and year round school calendars. Registration begins February 5 for Cary residents and February 19 for non-residents.
