Greystone Recreation Center

We are excited to announce the opening of our new recreation center in the Greystone Shopping Center on Leadmine Rd. This indoor facility offers a spectacular playground, climbing wall, dance/yoga studio, meeting space and classrooms. This space is the first of its kind for Raleigh and the vision for this space is to offer a wide variety of year-round, all-weather recreational programs for the neighboring community.

The center will also work with shopping center neighbors Gymboree and North Raleigh Arts & Creative Theater to provide complimentary and not competing programs. For programs check out Raleigh Parks & Recreation website.

Quality leisure, recreation and cultural opportunities greatly enhance the lives of Raleigh citizens, and this new facility will contribute to the wonderful quality of life we already have in Raleigh. The strength of Raleigh lies in our neighborhoods and this recreation center is something that will benefit not just our current residents but residents for years to come.

Greystone continues to serve as a model in Raleigh of desirable development. The whole Greystone community is a great example of a walkable neighborhood with bike paths and sidewalks, close access to grocery, recreation (pool, tennis, lake), banks, churches and shopping. I’m personally excited to see a facility like this in our district as I know this will provide another asset to our residents within walking distance of their homes.

I am surprised and disappointed that the park closes at 3 on Sat., and CLOSED on Sundays. These are the 2 big " park days " for kids and their parents since most are off on weekends. Come on....
