Highlights in Holly Springs
There's something wonderful about enjoying a cool beverage on a hot summer night while cheering on your local baseball team. And, in 2015, Holly Springs residents were able to do that with the opening of the more than $20 million North Main Athletic Complex.
While the Holly Springs Salamanders collegiate summer baseball team takes to the stadium field on summer nights, the synthetic turf also is used for the town's recreation football program, by soccer and lacrosse teams, and more. The complex also includes eight regulation-sized and four youth-sized tennis courts, and additional synthetic turf sufficient to contain two high school regulation-sized soccer fields. It's a beautiful facility that stays active throughout the year.
The Holly Springs Cultural Center is a $5 million complex complete with a performing arts theatre, conference center, outdoor stage and a branch of the Wake County public library system that opened in 2006. To view an upcoming schedule of events, please visit the cultural center’s website.
The Parks and Recreation department provides residents access to a wide range of athletic programs, summer camps, after school and “track-out” programs and maintains the Hunt Community Center, the Bass Lake Park and Retreat Center, and the Holly Springs Cultural Center. The Hunt Community Center underwent a $7 million renovation in 2011. To learn more, visit the parks and recreation website.
For the golfer, Holly Springs is home to two great private courses. Devils Ridge opened in 1991 and is part of the Sunset Ridge community. The second course, 12 Oaks, opened in 2009 as the centerpiece of a master planned community of nearly 700 acres.
Both of these communities, like many others in Holly Springs, also provide access to great swimming pools, tennis courts and walking trails.
Just minutes up the road, a number of other excellent amenities are easily accessed by area residents.
- Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts
- Durham Performing Arts Center
- Koka Booth Amphitheatre
