Welcome to Galax Parks and Recreation


Take the time to come by and see our newly installed Playground equipment in Felt’s Park.  The playground equipment was made possible through the (TCCF ) Twin County Community Foundation Grant.  We at the Galax Recreation Department would like to say Thank You to the TCCF for making this possible for our community youth.  Pictures are located on left side of this homepage


Fall 2019 is almost here.  Register now for our Fall Sports, Senior, and Aquatic programs.  Also, don’t forget our fall special events the annual Lord’s Acre Sale, Galax Autumn Days 5K Run.   Take time out to come in and visit our facility and try a new class or program this fall. Galax Parks and Recreation Department cordially invites you to come and participate in our many programs and activities.  At our facility you will find many options to meet your fitness and leisure needs. Our programs include a variety of aquatics, sports, and senior programs. Our goal is to provide the community with fitness and leisure options to help our citizens enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and learn a new activity.  As we move toward the end of 2019 we challenge everyone to make fitness a part of your daily routine as we aproach 2020.  If you are new to the area stop by the Galax Recreation Center and take a tour of our facilities and also enjoy a first time visit pass to participate in one of our classes, cardio or weight room for free.  In closing, we look forward to you visiting with us at the Galax Recreation Center and enjoying one of our many special events in the park.
