Harnett County Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan Public Input

Harnett County Parks and Recreation strives to meet the recreational needs of our community. In order to do this, we need to continuously assess those needs, understand how our community’s recreational needs are changing, and prioritize our citizen’s highest needs. With this in mind, we invite all citizens to attend one of our public input meetings.

Three public input meetings will be held at locations across the County to give every resident a chance to come out and provide input. Meetings will be held:

  • Tuesday, Aug. 16 at Al Woodall Municipal Park at 810 S. 16th St., Erwin (inside the gymnasium)
  • Tuesday, Aug. 23 at Barbecue Creek Park at 10891 N.C. 27, Lillington
  • Tuesday, Aug. 30 at the Lillington Community Center at 607 S. 13th St., Lillington

All meetings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. and will include refreshments for those in attendance.

This is YOUR OPPORTUNITY to give input about the recreation facilities and programs that YOU would like to see developed within the County. Let your voice be heard.
