Parks & Recreation

Cypress Cove ParkThe mission of the Leland Parks and Recreation Department is to make Leland an exceptional place to live by providing diverse parks, recreation facilities, and a variety of programs and opportunities that take advantage of the Town's natural and cultural resources. This inclusive program contributes to an unparalleled standard of community life for the residents of Leland.  

From Movies in the Park to our award-winning Leland We Don’t Know bus tours, special events have always been a hallmark of the department. Our programs took a giant step forward with the construction of the Leland Cultural Arts Center in 2015. Since opening, LCAC has offered hundreds of programs and events to the community and expands its offerings each session. In addition, Leland Parks and Recreation has had the pleasure of adding two other park facilities: Westgate Nature Park and the Cypress Cove Park at Sturgeon Creek Park water access site. These parks are just the beginning of what we envision as a vibrant park system connected by trails and paths that meet the needs of all Leland citizens.

Please explore the descriptions of our parks and recreation programs here, and then get outside and have some fun with us!  We can't wait to see you.

Contact us at with any questions, concerns, or what you'd like to see the department offer in the future.
