Community Centers

Last updated Oct. 02, 2019 - 1:29 pm

The Raleigh Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department offers community centers throughout the city. Community Centers offer a variety of programs and services for families and those of all ages. Join us for fitness, sports, arts, youth programs and most of all...FUN!


Please note hours of operation below apply specifically to community centers. Park hours are normally dawn to dusk.


Each center has different rooms and spaces available to rent and you can view more information about the rental spaces and details about policies and procedures. For all centers, the following policies will be consistent.

  • All rooms/spaces must be rented for a minimum of two hours.
  • There is a $15 application fee.
  • The completed rental contract and all rental fees must be submitted to reserve space.
  • There is a $100 damage deposit required for all rentals. This may be refunded if the renter adheres to the contract and stays within the rented time.
  • There is an additional fee of $20 per hour for any rentals that occur outside of operating hours. This does not apply to the neighborhood centers.
  • Both set-up and break-down time must be included in your rental. Factor this in when determining the length of your rental.
  • Warming Kitchens are available in many of the centers. Food may be warmed but not made from scratch in the kitchens.
