COVID-19 Parks & Recreation Information

Update: June 11, 2020

No further City Parks & Recreation facilities will be reopened until further notice in accordance with CDC and White House “Opening Up America Again” guidelines which recommend a sustained decline in COVID-19 infections or a decline in the percentage of positive tests.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, C.C. Woodson Community Center, Northwest Recreation Center, and Thornton Activity Center are closed 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.

Additionally, all City playgrounds including the Hot Spot Skate Park and fitness pads are closed until further notice.

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.
