COVID-19 Parks & Recreation Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, C.C. Woodson Community Center, Northwest Recreation Center, and Thornton Activity Center will close for normal operations beginning Monday, March 16 until further notice. This includes all center programming and rentals. We will be coordinating with area school districts and community partners on supportive services provided through our facilities during this time period.

Beginning Saturday, March 21 all City playgrounds and fitness pads will be closed until further notice. These close-contact areas with many high-touch surfaces cannot be cleaned frequently enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Spartanburg...Always Doing

Whether you’re looking for a lunchtime basketball game or a new bridge group, whether you like to pedal on two wheels or skate on four, there is always somewhere and something to play in Spartanburg.

The Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to enhancing your quality of life by providing a variety of recreational programs and opportunities in safe, well-maintained facilities and parks. More than 150,000 people of all ages participated in a program, took a class, or utilized a city recreation center or park at least once last year. And all of our fitness classes, sports, cultural arts and other special programs are open to the general public and are either free or available at a modest cost.
