Whether looking to celebrate a birthday, host the family cookout or plan the annual fall kickball tournament, consider the facility options available in Davie County.

Rich Park offers rental options from shelters, baseball fields, softball fields and more.

Options are also available at The Bullhole where you can reserve a shelter at RiverPark at Cooleemee Falls.

If looking for a location away from the summer heat, options are available at the Brock Recreation Center where you can use the gymnasium, conference rooms and kitchen.

Rich Park is owned and operated by the Town of Mocksville. Shelter reservations can be made by calling 336-753-6700.  Shelters offer access to playground areas and restrooms. Information regarding field rentals can also be obtained by calling town hall. To learn more about options, as well as pricing, visit www.MocksvilleNC.org/shelters.
