They say, “good things come in threes.” For the residents of Creedmoor and Granville County, the better statement may be “good health comes in threes.” That is because there are three parks that can help you get outdoors and in shape.
The largest and most spectacular park is Lake Rogers. Located at 1711 Lake Road (Hwy 56) just northwest of the City of Creedmoor, Lake Rogers is a shallow lake covering 175 acres. The area offers fishing, boating, hiking, a playground for the kids, and has 4 picnic shelters with other picnic tables scattered throughout the park. Additionally, the park is connected to wifi, so it is not unusual to have business people and students enjoying the North Carolina weather while also taking care of business.
A more traditional park is Harris Park (located at 415 Watson Street). Open to the public from sunrise to sunset, this park features a large picnic shelter (20×24) with two picnic tables, a playground with swings and benches. Parking is conveniently located in front of the park.
The third park is a bit more unique and offers Creedmoor residents a fresh alternative to outdoor recreation and fitness. Located at 2186 Brassfield Road in Creedmoor, the Gauntlet Fitness & Walking Trail is a 1.1 mile trail outfitted with a variety of fitness stations designed to challenge hikers. The trail is open from dawn to dusk every day throughout the year.
