Dance classes, Art classes, BINGO, Litter Sweeps, and more. The Community Center is one dividable room that can be rented as well, for events such as HOA meetings, birthdays, graduation parties, reunions, and more! The center will accommodate 293 people without chairs and tables and 133 people with all the tables and chairs set up.
Redford Place Park (121 Redford Place Drive, Rolesville)
Formerly known as Rolesville Community School Park, Redford Place Park has 3 Baseball/Softball fields and a Picnic Shelter that serves the Parks and Recreation Youth Athletics programs.
Main Street Park (200 S. Main Street/500 Scarboro Street, Rolesville)
This park has a lot to offer with two playgrounds, open space for playing, a public restroom building, and outdoor workout stations located along the greenway system. Over a mile of greenway goes through Main Street Park. There are also four rentable picnic shelters and a rentable gazebo, with plenty of resting benches along the greenway.
Mill Bridge Nature Park (425 Nature Park Drive, Wake Forest)
Located off Rogers Road, Mill Bridge Nature Park connects with the Wake Forest Parks & Recreation Greenways and runs along the beautiful Sanford Creek. The 200-seat Amphitheatre is also the site of the Town’s spring concert series, Music at Mill Bridge. Mill Bridge Nature Park closes at dusk.
In addition to the established parks and greenway system, planning is in progress for The Farm (working title), located near the intersection of N. Main Street and Highway 401. This park will have a variety of indoor and outdoor recreational facilities, something for everyone! Planning is in progress for Rolesville Community Center at Cobblestone. The new facility will be located at the intersection of Young and Main Streets. Updates on these projects can be found at RolesvilleNC.gov.
