The cornerstone of the Apex Parks system is the 160-acre Community Park. The park includes picnic shelters, playground, fishing lake, restroom facilities, nature and fitness trails and various athletic fields. The 50+ acre lake allows fishing with a permit from the town, and is available for use by canoes, kayaks, john boats (not exceeding 14 ft in length) and rowing skulls if launched at the designated area. Step up your fitness at the Elevate Fitness Course at Apex Community Park (near the back tennis courts). Wear comfortable clothes and athletic shoes to try out the equipment, inspired by the fast-growing trend of obstacle course fitness.
