- Parking is available in the four parking lots off of Umstead Drive.
- Due to the high volume of people and limited parking, please carpool if possible.
- Do not park in the grass – driving on tree roots damages the trees and we want to keep the 150 year old oaks around for as long as possible!

COVID – 19 Risks / Release, Indemnity, and Agreement Not To Sue (revised 7/6/2020)
The City of Raleigh has been forced to confront the potential dangers associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The City’s Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department remains committed to providing high quality programming. However, in order to comply with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other federal, state, and local public health agencies, the PRCR Department has implemented additional safety precautions to ensure that program participants and other PRCR Department staff will have a fun, exceptional experience.
The contents of this document supplement applicable program policies (including Camp Policies and School-Based Program policies), the Program Registration Form, and the online registration for participants who registered through RecLink at parks.raleighnc.gov.

I also agree for myself and for any child participant to follow all rules and procedures of the program and to follow the reasonable instructions of the counselors, staff members, and supervisors of the program.
