Approximately 2.5 miles of Forest Creek Greenway Trail is closed for repairs of severe washouts and damage from hurricane storms. Closure extends from the end of Nick's Creek trail to just behind The O'Neal School. Repairs are underway.
Southern Pines Residents
Southern Pines residents receive resident rates for programs, athletics and activities. See resident definition for details. No Southern Pines resident child will be denied participation due to financial hardship.

If you do not live in or own property in the city limits of Southern Pines, you may purchase a nonresident membership for $60 (non-refundable). Non-resident memberships DO NOT APPLY TO RENTALS.
