Parks & Recreation

Parks & Recreation Vision Statement
Troutman’s high-quality parks, beautiful open spaces, protected natural areas, and innovative recreational facilities are welcoming to all. The verdant parks have been thoughtfully designed to be accessible and offer unique experiences for all ages, abilities, and interests. The Town’s greenways offer easily navigable and integrated connections between neighborhoods, community destinations, and town parks. Residents are active participants in promoting the establishment of new parks and recreational programs while keeping existing facilities clean, safe, and well maintained for the Town’s current and future residents.

Parks

Troutman ESC Park
Thanks to a donation by Engineered Sintered Components of 30 acres of land and the support of local businesses, community organizations, and residents, Troutman ESC Park opened to the public with a playground dedication in May 2013. Today, Troutman Youth Athletic Association soccer teams practice and play games on the park’s fescue fields, the Troutman Rotary Club Nature Trail is completed and the Walking Trail is a popular spot for runners and walkers alike. Community events are regularly held at the park including the weekly Farmers Market; 5K, 10K and Fun runs; the annual Trails and Treats Halloween festival; and Troutman Police Department’s National Night Out celebration.

The pavilion and picnic tables may be reserved by the public. To reserve the pavilion or contribute to our park contact Troutman Town Hall at 704-528-7600.
 
Athletic programs and field reservations are scheduled through the Iredell County Parks & Recreation Department.
 
Location & Hours: Troutman ESC Park is located at 338 North Ave. Public parking is available at Town Hall or within the park. The park is open from dawn until dusk everyday.

Greenway System

The Richardson Greenway runs parallel to Main St and connects to Troutman ESC Park’s paved walking trail near Town Hall. The greenway is part of the Carolina Thread Trail project, a regional network of greenways, trails, and conserved lands across 15 counties in North and South Carolina. The Town obtained grant funding to extend the trail to the north in 2015 and in the future plans to extend the trail to the south.

In the Fall of 2015, grant funding will allow the Town to construct from Main St to South Iredell High School a sidewalk/greenway for bicyclists and walkers. The Richardson Greenway will be connected to this segment which is part of the Troutman Loop of the Lake Norman Bicycle Route.

Location & Hours: The existing greenway can be accessed from the Downtown Depot Shelter (137 N Main St), Troutman Town Hall (400 N Eastway Dr), Iredell County Fairgrounds (630 N Main St), or the Barium Springs YMCA (122 Grannis Ln). The greenway is open every day with no time restrictions; however, only portions of the greenway are lighted.
