Activate your lifestyle
“Lifestyle Redefined” in historic and scenic Rocky Mount is the natural beauty and exhilarating outdoor living options both actively and socially just minutes from Belmont Lake Preserve.
The scenic and historic Tar River Trail runs directly along its namesake river, stretching through the city from Sunset Park in the West to Martin Luther King, Jr. Park in the East. With over 20 miles of waterways connecting the Tar River and Stony Creek and ten canoe and kayak access locations, a paddle through town is as accessible as a leisurely stroll in achieving your sense of self.
Right in the heart of downtown, the Rocky Mount Senior Center makes staying fit or socializing an easy fix. With a state of the art fitness center, an indoor pool, gymnasium, and an outdoor 1/5 mile walking track in addition to a game room, and outdoor space for horseshoes, bocce, and shuffleboard, active lifestyle awaits at the Senior Center.
Tennis Anyone? With open access to state of the art public outdoor tennis courts at neighboring North Carolina Wesleyan College, as well as open courts at Sunset Park, if tennis is you’re game, you’re never to far from a match opening serve.
The feeling of community synonymous with “Lifestyle Redefined” is never more apparent than at the year-round Outdoor Events in the city of Rocky Mount. From their “Downtown Live” or “Lawn Chair Theatre” concert series’ in the Spring and Summer months, or the Eastern Carolina BBQ Throwdown in the Fall, familiar faces and new acquaintances are always brought together as one.
