Virtual Programs

Welcome to the City of Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Virtual Playground! This is your place to find activities to do at home. While we miss seeing everyone in our parks and at our programs, it is important to us to continue to bring the fun to you until we can resume normal programming and events. 

Ready? Set? Let's Go Biking: Bike Rodeo Adventure (REGISTER HERE)

Let's Go Biking NCApproximately 16 child pedestrians and three child bicyclists under age 15 are involved in fatal crashes each year in North Carolina, and hundreds more are injured.
