Cape Fear Regional Theatre

No One Would Have Imagined in 1962 that a small group of local actors would one day evolve into one of the finest theatres in the state. It all began with a two-show season starting with the classic Dicken’s A Christmas Carol performed at Alexander Graham Junior High and the courtroom drama The Night of January 16th performed at the Fayetteville Courthouse.

Arnette Park

Arnette Park is a 100 acre facility with numerous amenities. Though much of the park has been developed, over half is still in its natural state, supporting abundant wildlife and assorted plants and trees. An assortment of outdoor facilities are open to the public and can also be reserved. These include: picnic areas and pavilions, nature trails, an 18 hole disc golf course, football and soccer fields, softball fields, horseshoe pits, tennis courts, sand volleyball courts and childrens playgrounds.
