Welcome to the Town of Leland Department of
Parks, Recreation and Environmental Programs’ Web site. This is an exciting time for Parks and Recreation in Leland. Since the department’s creation in the Fall of 2008, the Parks and Recreation Board and staff have been working diligently to create a variety of programs and events for the enjoyment of Leland citizens. The department has also been busy planning for the future by exploring opportunities for the development of new parks, trails and facilities.
Be sure to check out the links to our Programs and Special Events pages to keep abreast of new and upcoming activities in the Town, and be on the lookout for plans for new park facilities to be added to the Parks page as we begin to work on them. Public input is extremely important as the department, like the Town, grows and expands.
Please feel free to contact me at the number below with any questions, concerns or ideas. Together, we can all make Leland an even better place to live and play!

Bark in the Park Coming Soon
Bring your favorite four-legged companion with you to the Town of Leland’s annual Bark in the Park on Saturday, March 8, at the Leland Municipal Park (102 Town Hall Drive) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This event features a free rabies clinic, demonstrations, contests and more from pet-centric businesses in Leland and the surrounding areas. Sponsored by Capeside Animal Hospital and Furever Friends Animal Rescue, this event promises to be a hit with you and your best canine pal. For safety, we ask that no aggressive dogs or cats be brought into the park during this event.
