The Town of Fuquay-Varina is excited to announce the design of the Community Center North/Senior Center is in the preliminary stage!

Most importantly, the goal of the new Community Center North/Senior Center will be to promote mental, physical, and emotional health for all community members through quality-of-life programming.

The new facility will be located at Hilltop Needmore Town Park and Preserve Park (HNTPP). This site will be also be the future home of the WCPSS Hilltop Needmore Road Elementary School. The Community Center North/Senior Center are part of the 2020 Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources (PRCR) Systemwide Master Plan that was adopted in July 2020. HNTPP is 143-acre park with five miles of paved trails and open green space. The remaining property at HNTPP will be Master Planned in Fiscal Year 22.

We recognize the diverse nature of our growing community and the necessity for a new Community Center to offer activities and programs that are of interest to all our residents. This facility will also help to accommodate the growth in program demand in Fuquay-Varina. For example, the Town currently must rent gym space to accommodate our successful basketball program.

The first step in this design process will be a robust Public Engagement Phase geared toward facilitating a discussion, gathering input, and developing a program that meets the needs of the entire community now and in the future. That’s where you come in!

Over the next couple of months, we want to hear from you and learn about the programs and activities that are important to you and your family. There will be many opportunities for you to engage in this discussion, including surveys, Q and A sessions, and public meetings. While the majority of these will be held virtually or on digital platforms for your safety, we are working to provide opportunities for in-person engagement as well.

The Town has engaged a design team led by HH Architecture, which includes senior-active adult center specialists, Lifespan Design Studio.

    Hi, Our 25+ year old neighborhood (Southwyck), outside of town limits is in between 2 new neighborhoods within town limits very close to the location of new proposed community center. Will address proximity be considered for use of the new community center or will it be based on resident, or non resident? Thanks!

    Lyons asked about 1 month ago

    The future Community Center North / Senior Center will be available for both residents and non-residents.

    Can you consider making a community swimming pool outside of the center because there is no community pool in Fuquay. It would be really nice to have!

    Liz2021 asked about 2 months ago

    There are no plans to include a swimming pool as part of the Community Center North / Senior Center Project.  The 2020 Comprehensive Systemwide Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Master Plan does identify a swimming pool / aquatics center beyond 2025 and will be reevaluated in the next comprehensive systemwide master plan.

    What are the plans for transportation (especially for the elderly) to the Community Center North/Senior Center? Will there be a circulator bus from pickup points such as the current Community Center?

    Carolina gal asked about 2 months ago

    There is no plan to provide transportation to and from Hilltop Needmore Town Park & Preserve or the Community Center North / Senior Center. The current Community Center offers a service into downtown Raleigh provide by GoTriangle, it does not provide a circulator service around town.

    I can’t envision where this center will be located. Is it the old golf clubhouse or a different piece of property? Is there a rough sketch of the proposed facility?

    JDaug asked about 2 months ago

    This will be a new building.  The old golf clubhouse is located on the northside of Hilltop Needmore Road. The future Community Center North / Senior Center will be located at Hilltop Needmore Town Park & Preserve property to the south of Hilltop Needmore Road.  The Town is currently working with Wake County Public Schools on the site master plan.  Once the Site Master Plan is complete it will be shared with the public through this platform.

    Why are we spending most of the money here and hardly any for our community center downtown? This is so far away with no transportation to get there by the common citizen.

    Fuquay Ave asked about 2 months ago

    The Community Center at South Park was completed in 2007 and serves the area well.  It is located within a mile of downtown.  The Fuquay-Varina Arts Center, which opened in 2018, is also located in the downtown.  Since 2010, the latest Census figures, the town has almost doubled in population.  The new Community Center North / Senior Center will provide additional opportunities for all ages on the north side of town, assist with the growth, and demand for recreational programs
