TRAILS AND PARKS
Reidsville boasts a number of trails and parks throughout the city that provide a variety of activities for people of all ages and abilities.
Most of our parks offer a combination of activities such as playgrounds, athletic fields, picnic spots and walking trails.
Our Reidsville Greenway is located at Jaycee Park and is a local favorite for walking, running and biking while also enjoying all the sights and sounds nature has to offer along the path.
In 2022 Reidsville announced plans to add an all-inclusive park to the downtown area. It will be the first of its kind in Rockingham County and allow children of all ages and abilities the opportunity to explore and play. You can read more about it here.
