RecConnect going largely digital, residents urged to sign up for email delivery

Tuesday, December 8, 2020 - 3:24pm

After a 15-year run, the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department is discontinuing the mass mailing of its biannual program guide to Town residents in the 27587 zip code. Beginning in February 2021, a limited number of RecConnect copies will be printed and available for pickup at Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St., and PRCR facilities, such as Joyner Park Community Center, 701 Harris Road, Flaherty Park Community Center, 1226 N. White St., and Alston-Massenburg Center, 416 S. Taylor St.

In anticipation of this change, residents accustomed to receiving the program guide in the mail are encouraged to sign up to receive RecConnect via email at The publication will continue to be available to view/download online at

Although printed editions of RecConnect will no longer arrive in mailboxes, the same high-quality content will continue to be included in each issue. Published twice a year, RecConnect provides complete information on parks and recreation-sponsored programs and activities for people of all ages, including youth and adult athletics, cultural programs and classes, and special events. Each edition of the program guide also includes important news and contact information, along with the names and locations of Wake Forest parks, open spaces, indoor facilities and greenways.

In addition to generating a significant cost savings, the transition from a printed to largely digital publication will allow staff to update information in RecConnect as programs change.
