Recreation Center


Welcome to Morehead City Parks and Recreation Center! We have recently had a building update including a fresh, new paint job, remodeled bathrooms (west end), bright new carpet, new televisions in the cardio room, a custom-built front desk, as well as two enticing murals painted by local Morehead City artist and small business owner, Chrissy Suralik.  Come check it out!  We would be happy to provide a guided tour of our facilities.  There is something for the whole family at Morehead City Parks and Recreation Center.  We are located at 1600 Fisher Street, Morehead City, 28557.  Please call 252-726-5083 ext 1 for more information.
