Apex Community Park

New - Elevate Fitness Course!

NOTE: The course will be closed to the general public on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-5 pm through August 9th, while our pilot fitness program group uses the equipment. We look forward to seeing the results of this pilot program, and will be using the results to create more programming, available in Spring 2018!

Step up your fitness at the new Elevate Fitness Course located at Apex Community Park (near the back tennis courts). Wear comfortable clothes and athletic shoes to try out the equipment, inspired by the fast-growing trend of obstacle course fitness.

The course was designed with teens in mind, but the Apex Parks & Recreation Department will be using Elevate to create wellness programs for all ages and abilities!

We partnered with BCI Burke Playground Equipment and Barrs Recreation to bring this equipment and program to Apex – the first of its kind in the country!


Effective 7/1/16, water access for the picnic shelter spouts will be unavailable for shelter rentals.
