The Roanoke Region is packed with public parks so you can get out and play. Each park offers different settings and amenities and some have available shelters and grills you can rent for events (check with local parks and recreation departments for more information). Many of the parks also connect to the expansive greenway network, so you can take a break when enjoying the urban trail system.
