In order to help our citizens stay safe while enjoying our parks, you will see signs reminding parents and children of the requirement for children under the age of 16 to wear helmets while riding bicycles on our parks’ public bicycle paths.  The signs will show the following:

NOTICE:  STATE LAW REQUIRES ALL BIKERS UNDER 16 YEARS OLD MUST WEAR HELMET WHILE RIDING. N.C.G.S.  20-171.9

The Importance of Parks and Recreation

God made us walking animals - pedestrians.  Just as a fish needs to swim, a bird to fly, a deer to run, we need to walk, not in order to survive, but to be happy.  Although we could survive inside an apartment all our life, we can be much happier if we can walk and run about, as freely as possible.

The importance of pedestrian public spaces cannot be measured.  We cannot prove mathematically that wider sidewalks, pedestrian streets, more or better parks make people happier, much less measure how much happier.  However if we reflect, most things that are important in life cannot be measured either.  Parks and other pedestrian places are essential to a town's happiness.

Parks are about many things and important to a democratic society.  In a town, parks are essential to the physical and emotional health of its citizens and visitors.   For the poor, the only alternative to television for their leisure time is the public space.  For this reason, high-quality public pedestrian space, and parks in particular, are evidence of a true democracy at work.  Parks are a place to meet not only with nature but with other people as well.

Granite Quarry is truly blessed with three fine parks: Centennial Park, Granite Civic Park, Granite Lake Park.
