About Whiteville Parks and Recreation
The City’s Parks and Recreation department is responsible for two major areas in our community. First, this department is charged with the management of the City’s six (6) parks and four (4) open green spaces. Secondly, this department strives to deliver excellent recreation programs to the citizens of Whiteville and our surrounding neighbors.
The goal of this department is to continue to promote and develop new programs that reach all age groups in our community making everyone feel that our parks and recreation program has something for all. The City’s Parks and Recreation Department encourages our citizens and patrons to bring new ideas to us through our Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee or just by stopping in and talking with our director. We welcome new ideas!
