Bob Dowless, Director

Welcome, and thank you for visiting us at the Concord Parks and Recreation Department. Whether you are looking for recreational programming, hours of operation or the closest park or greenway, we have something for you.

Providing quality programming and services and a safe, aesthetically pleasing greenway and park system is the commitment we make every day to families and residents of Concord. We take great pride in providing services that enhance quality of life and we strive to make our community a great place to live.

Make time for yourself and family to take a walk through one of our parks. Walk, jog or bike the greenways, visit one of our community centers and participate in a recreational class or program.   There is no better time to invest in a healthy future than today.

The Concord Parks and Recreation Department takes great pride in the community support we receive and want you to know that we are continually working to earn your support.

We invite you to share your comments with us concerning our parks and programs. Your ideas will be appreciated and given thoughtful consideration.   You can reach our office by calling 704-920-5600 or by email at
