Haw River State Park
Haw River State Park is a hidden gem even locals don’t know about. Located near Browns Summit, this park makes for a great outing when you are entertaining family or friends. This relatively new state park along the banks of the Haw River is over 1,400 acres in size and provides recreation areas for hiking, fishing, and picnicking. The Summit Environmental Education Center at Haw River State Park is a residential environmental education and conference center, which can accommodate group events up to 180 attendees. The complex includes meeting spaces, a gym, athletic field, disc golf facilities, and an outdoor pool.
The park is a wonderful amenity for the residents of nearby Lennox Woods. The Lennox Woods community was established as a luxury home neighborhood with European country architecture, creating a wonderful ambiance with the heavily wooded surroundings. The large lots over 3/4 of an acre ensure plenty of space for children to play outside. Quiet streets are perfect for an afternoon stroll or morning jog. Neighborhood amenities include a Junior Olympic sized swimming pool, which is one of the largest in the area. The pool deck is a hub of activity on hot summer days. If swimming isn’t your thing, enjoy the lit tennis, pickle ball, and basketball courts. The beautifully equipped clubhouse is adjacent and provides support for year round parties with a fully equipped kitchen, large screen tv’s, a pool table, and a covered patio. You will feel like you are on a permanent vacation.
