Recreation Services Addresses COVID-19 - Parks, Fields Closed

Buncombe County and other local partners are taking measures to prepare for the potential spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, which includes considering the safety of our park visitors and recreation program participants.

Beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020, and lasting until further notice:

  • All Buncombe County parks and fields are closed to the public. Athletic field permits are canceled through March 31 with a plan to reassess on or before that date.
  • All Buncombe County Recreation Services programming and special events are canceled or postponed.
  • All picnic shelter rentals are canceled through April 30 and no new reservations will be accepted. Existing rentals can be rescheduled for a date later than April 30 or issued a 100% credit or refund. Please email parks@buncombecounty.org for assistance.

We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any modifications in a timely manner. The latest local preparedness information and news on COVID-19 can be found here.
