Welcome to the New Bern Parks and Recreation website.  As we update this site, you will be able to browse 27 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 enhance the quality of life for all citizens through the development of sustainable facilities, parks, programs, and services that promote a lifestyle of cultural arts, physical activity and wellness for all.

Our Vision is to become an innovative, inclusive provider of recreation services that create community through people, parks, and programs.

If you have any questions about our facilities, parks, programs, or special events, please contact us at (252)639-2901
