Welcome to Galax Parks and Recreation

The fall & winter season of 2018-19 will soon be upon us. 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 enter the fall and winter season we challenge everyone to make fitness a part of your daily routine.  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 the Galax Recreation Center and enjoying one of our many special events in the park.
