Per North Carolina Governor Executive Order No. 163 in response to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, all playgrounds are now open with restrictions.  
Outside group size is limited to 50 or less. Public restrooms, shelters, trails are open. Athletic fields and the Waxhaw Sk8 Park are open with modifications (25 citizens or less on field or within skate area). Athletic field space must be reserved by calling the Waxhaw Parks & Recreation Office at 704-843-2195 ext. 258.
Parks are an important focal point for activities and well-being! As the Parks & Recreation Department grows, ​a defined park system will continue to take shape. The Town of Waxhaw currently has a children's park, skateboard park, contemplative garden, sports park, community park, a community corner for events, and a budding greenway system.
