VillageParksSystemsThe Village of Pinehurst parks and greenway trails offer a wide range of activities, including soccer/baseball fields, picnic shelters, in-line hockey rink, a disc golf course and miles of greenway trails.  The following is a list of our parks and greenway trail information: 

Cannon Park

Located off Hwy 211, is a 15 acre facility with restrooms, 2 baseball/softball fields, covered picnic shelter, walking trails, and a small practice soccer field.  The picnic shelter and ball fields may be reserved for a minimal fee.  

The park is a longstanding favorite with families and includes Camelot Playground, a medieval castle where children can explore secret passages and tunnel mazes. The playground is designed for kids of all ages and includes infant and therapeutic swings. A separate playground located next to Camelot is designed for older kids. 

Parents can enjoy a large sitting area within the playground and several surrounding picnic tables that allow parents to catch up on reading while the kids catch up on playing.

Rassie Wicker Park

Located off Rassie Wicker Drive (site of the Village Hall, Police Station and Fire Station), is currently being developed as a community park. Amenities available within the 103 acre facility include the new splash pad, 2  tennis courts, bocce court, soccer field, in-line hockey, playground, paved walking trails, brick sidewalks, expanded trail system and concession stand/restroom facility.

Wicker Park is also home to the 33 acre Arboretum that was being developed by the Village Heritage Foundation. The Magnolia Lawn, Joyce's Meadow, the Pergola Garden and Timmel Pavilion may all be reserved for weddings, receptions, and other events.  A deposit and rental fees do apply.

West Pinehurst Community Park

Located at 861 Chicken Plant Road West Pinehurst Park is a newer addition to the Village’s parks system and currently is the location of the Village's 18 hole disc golf course.  Limited parking is available on site and disc golf equipment is available for check out from Village Hall to use on the course. 

James W. Tufts Memorial Park

Located in the heart of the village center, this park is also known as the "Village Green".  The park features an open green space with benches and picnic tables around the perimeter of the park.  Tufts Park also hosts a number of special events including the Pinehurst Live after 5 Concert Series, the 1in8K Rally for the Cure, weekly farmers market, and Christmas Tree Lighting.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plans

There are currently 7.05 linear miles of greenway trails constructed in the Village.  In 2015 the Village adopted a Pedestrian Master Plan which calls for future expansion of greenway trails and sidewalks throughout the Village to promote connectivity and active living.  Please not that greenway trails are for pedestrian and bicycling access only.  Motorized vehicles, such as golf carts, are not allowed on the trails.  Violators are subject to fines and penalties as set forth in the Village of Pinehurst Municipal Code.

The Village also adopted a Bicycle Master Plan in which emphasis was placed on bike lanes, side paths and other measures to improve safety for cyclists.  The plan was funded in part by a NCDOT Planning Grant which was received in 2013.  The Village has a Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) that meets quarterly in the Village Hall to discuss future projects and we welcome residents and the public to join us at these meetings.  The meetings schedule can be found here.
