The Granville Athletic Park (GAP) is open from dawn to dusk all year round.  The park resulted from the efforts of many to utilize land donated by the Jonesland Board of Directors and funds earmarked by the Tourism Development Authority to develop a facility that includes both active and passive recreation opportunities for all county residents and visitors. Read about the history here.

The park was funded by a State of North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) grant, a Federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grant, and general obligation (GO) bond financing. The debt service on the GO debt is being repaid through occupancy tax revenues provided by the Granville County Tourism Development Authority.

In addition fields and facilities available to rent, the park offers a variety of amenities that appeal to all regardless of interests or age.

The images below capture a glimpse of what is accessible for you and your family to enjoy within a short drive.  Additional information on facility rentals is also available here.

For the safety of our patrons, a lightning detection system monitors the park and surrounding areas for electrical storms. The horns will typically sound 20 minutes prior to the approaching storm. Patrons should seek immediate shelter within buildings and/or cars. Three short horns will go off when it is safe to go back outside.
