Chapel Hill and Carrboro are rich in parks and recreation opportunities. Chapel Hill boasts three community centers, three community parks, and seven neighborhood parks. Carrboro is similarly fortunate to have six different park facilities available. From the large parks like Anderson and Homestead with dozens of recreational opportunities to tiny Simpson Triangle park with its few picnic tables and a grill, everyone is sure to find a place that satisfies their particular need for sports and leisure.
