About Us


Parks and Recreation services and amenities are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our community. Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation (FCPR) is pleased to be able to offer new programming throughout the year, and to expand our current facilities for the growing community to enjoy.

FCPR partnered with the new owners at the Kings Grant Golf Course to bring affordable golf services to the  community this year. Included in the new offerings are discounted rounds of golf, leagues for juniors, seniors and ladies, as well as youth instructional camps. To date, over 600 individuals have been able to participate in golf programming thanks to this new partnership.

As a result of the passing of the Parks and Recreation Bond Referendum by citizens in 2016, FCPR is the proud home to three new Splash Pads! These new facilities are located at the Kiwanis, Massey Hill and Myers Recreation Centers. These splash pads are fully accessible and offer visitors an opportunity for recreation and social interaction. The splash pads provide water based outdoor play for all ages and utilize a recirculation system ensuring water is recycled and kept clean for use.

This summer, FCPR staff began work to transform the baseball field at the Massey Hill Recreation Center from a traditional grass and dirt ballfield to a Universally Accessible Playing Surface. This site is home to FCPR’s Buddy Sports Program, which offers an inclusive playing opportunity to individuals of all abilities. The new playing field, made possible through the Parks and Recreation Bond Referendum and grant opportunities, will feature a fully rubberized surface allowing for ease of access to those with mobility challenges. Upgrades to the previously existing dugouts and seating areas are also included in the redesign. Completion of the field work is anticipated for early Oct., so be sure to stop by the Massey Hill Recreation Center and view all of the great upgrades!

Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation staff are proud of the current progress in both programming and facility offerings, and hope you’re seeing why FCPR is better than ever! Please visit our new facilities and keep an eye out for more changes coming soon!
