Welcome to the New Bern Parks and Recreation website.  As we update this site, you will be able to browse 25 parks, 5 cemeteries, several special use facilities, youth and adult athletics, a variety of programs and year round special events.

Our department is nationally accredited through CAPRA (Commission for the Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies).

Our Mission is to provide social, cultural, environmental, and physical well-being opportunities through recreation.

If you have any questions about our facilities, parks, programs, or special events, please feel free to call us at 252-639-2901.
