Riverbend Park

Crafted along the banks of the mighty Tar, Riverbend Park provides fishing access, canoe access, playground equipment, a picnic shelter, and plenty of shady spots for a nice lunchtime nap. Riverbend Park is located at the end of S. Church St., located adjacent to the Downtown area of Louisburg.

Joyner Park

Joyner Park was developed using a generous 32 acre donation of land from Mr. Carroll Joyner, and a North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund grant. The facility includes a 2/5 of a mile paved walking trail, a 1.5 mile natural trail, a 100 yard soccer field, a wonderful playground area for all ages, and two spacious picnic shelters.

Bike Trail

The Louisburg Bike Trail is a 2.2 mile paved bicycle trail between S. Main Street and at Vance Granville Community College (VGCC). The S. Main Street terminus is located at Depot St. Hill. Access to this end of the trail may be made either from the parking lot or via a short pedal from Riverbend Park. Bicyclists may use the other terminus as a starting or ending point as there is ample parking at VGCC. The construction of the trail was made possible through a generous Bicycle and Pedestrian Grant from the State of North Carolina.

Skateboard Park

The Louisburg skateboard park is open from dawn until dusk, located on Spring Street. Skaters are required to wear proper gear when using the facility and all skating is undertaken at the participants' own risk. Children under 12 require adult supervision. A seasonal permit is required to use the park. These permits may be obtained at the Louisburg Town Hall.

Interested in shooting hoops?

Public goals are located beside the Police/Fire/Training Center. The courts are available from dawn until dusk.
