Built in 2002, this $150,000, 4400 sq. ft. building was constructed with modern maintenance-free materials and is at the heart of the community. Inside is a kitchen, two meeting areas, rest rooms and storage. This center will provide all of us with a great gathering place for both community and social activities. Today this building is being used for:
- Birthday parties
- Anniversary parties
- Wedding receptions
- Family reunions
- Scout meetings
- Community dances
- Monthly Community meetings
- July 4th celebration
- Church activities
You may rent the community center for your own social event by contacting the Park/Community Center Reservations Director at 919-550-1738.
The community recently installed a walking trail that encircles the entire park. The trail is approximately 1/3 of a mile long. You can see the playground from almost anywhere on the trail so you can walk while your children have fun playing.
If your plans call for an outside event, you might want to use the community picnic shelter. The shelter is behind the community center and has sufficient table seating for approximately 60 people. The shelter is used by the Community during the July 4th Family Fun Day and the pumpkin carving event in October. At other times, the picnic shelter is available for cook outs, family reunions, birthday parties, etc.
If you have been to the park, you have noticed the amphitheater built by the community from funds from annual events. This was added to the community in 1982. During the July 4th Family Fun Day, the amphitheater is used by musical bands and for the Little Miss Archer Lodge Pageant.
On a sunny afternoon feel free to use the other recreational areas and equipment at the park. The basketball and tennis courts are open all year round. You can enjoy these courts and keep an eye on your children while they play on the park equipment. In addition, the ball field is available except during special events and the T-Ball and soccer seasons. So ENJOY THE PARK!
