Henderson-Vance Recreation & Parks Closures

Parks Department remains closed to the public until further notice. See more below.

We understand the disappointment because the Governor's order does reference that parks can open, but it also recommended additional precautions for community gatherings and that playgrounds are to remain closed. Recreation is our business and our responsibility, therefore we are keeping our parks and playground equipment “closed” but will continue to encourage you to utilize the walking trails and tracks we have to offer. We are asking our Henderson-Vance community to continue to practice social distancing in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Below is a list of Henderson-Vance Recreation and Parks Facilities and there status.


 Aycock Recreation Center
     Aycock Aquatic Center
Old Aycock Gym - Indoor Facility
Fox Pond Park 
All Satellite Sites
     First Presbyterian Church
     Vance County Senior Center
All Playground Equipment and Structures

Remaining Open:

 All Outdoor Parks, Trails and Tracks excluding Fox Pond Park

 Henderson-Vance Recreation & Parks will monitor the situation and make an assessment on when it is safe to reopen some or all of the effected facilities.  Updates about facilities, classes/programs and events will be available on our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter) and website at
