Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Department

401 Laureate Way, 3rd Floor
Kannapolis, NC 28081

The Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Department strives to exceed citizens’ expectations by offering the highest quality park facilities, a wide variety of programming and excellence in our interactions with users.

Parks and Recreation maintains many parks including Bakers Creek Park, Veterans Park, Village Park, Walter M. Safrit Park, Kannapolis Middle School Athletic Fields, Dale Earnhardt Tribute Plaza, the Kannapolis Cemetery and several City owned properties. The Parks and Recreation Department also partners with the Kannapolis YMCA, the Cabarrus Arts Council, the Cabarrus County Library-Kannapolis Branch and other organizations to provide programs and events. 

The department has achieved new heights with the expansion efforts at Village Park. The Village Park Amphitheater, the largest in Cabarrus County, was the site of the first Summer Concert Series in 2004, and a successful Movie in the Park series was added in 2005. The award-winning Summer Entertainment Series continues to grow attracting over 50,000 people annually from Kannapolis and the surrounding Charlotte region.
