StoryWalk® at the Parkstorywalk small sign

We are excited to introduce StoryWalk® to Apex! You can read a provided children's book as you walk along a short trail. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

CURRENT LOCATION (as of 12/16/21):  Hunter Street Park, 1250 Ambergate Station. This loop starts at the back of the park past the ball field. The path is about .5 miles and paved.

CURRENT BOOK:  Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner

If you have already done one of our Storywalks®, we would love for you to share your feedback here. We typically keep our books up for about a month at each location. We will update the webpage here as soon as changes are made. 

 Kids in Parks TRACK Trailkids in park

We re excited to partner with Kids in Parks to bring a TRACK Trail to the path around Lake Pine in Apex Community Park.

When you visit the park, you will find this new kiosk at the trailhead next to the shelters. Drive in from the Laura Duncan entrance (2200 Laura Duncan Rd) all the way back to the end of the parking lot.
