Spring is upon us and we are so excited to get out of the house and enjoy the nice upcoming weather (even if the pollen is here!) with our families. We have compiled a list of some of our favorite family parks in the Fayetteville, Raeford, Hope Mills, and Southern Pines areas.
#1. Mazarick Park

Mazarick is an extensive park with wooded areas and trails, multiple play structures, tennis courts, open areas, a baseball field, disc golf, picnic structures, and Glenville Lake.
#2. Lake Rim Park
2214 Tar Kiln Drive, Fayetteville
Lake Rim is high on our list because its list of amenities is extensive. There are walking trails, covered picnic areas, horseshoe pits, athletic fields, playgrounds, and a soon to open splash pad. Our own team members have kayaked on the lake.
#3. Honeycutt Park

This is a centrally located park near Fayetteville Technical Community college.
