PARKS AND RECREATION
The Towns of Mayodan and Madison have entered into a unique agreement to jointly fund a Recreation Department that provides recreational services for citizens of both towns. The Madison-Mayodan Recreation Department is located at 300 South Second Avenue, at the intersection of NC 135.
The Towns of Mayodan and Madison engaged Smith Management and Consulting Services to perform an Assessment of the Recreation Center Management. In January 2017 this plan was presented to both Town Councils for their review. The plan is available for public review here.
March 20th Town Council meeting to discuss Parks & Recreation Services in Mayodan presentation can be viewed here.

The M-M Department hosts a variety of events and activities throughout the year, please check our website or their website to stay up-to-date.
For almost 40 years the Towns of Mayodan and Madison have shared a common goal of providing quality recreational opportunities to the community. In the 1970s the YMCA owned by Washington Mills Company was donated to the Town of Mayodan. The two towns developed a contractual agreement to jointly operate a Recreation Department with a separate appointed Recreation Commission made up of residents from both towns.
For more information on the department visit their website.
Our newest recreational activity is a Mountain Bike Trail at Farris Memorial Park; watch the travel video.
The Rockingham County Health Department has created a fun application that can be downloaded to your smart phone. The application provides maps to various recreational locations throughout the county, including parks, schools, recreation centers, river access points, and other recreation opportunities in the area. The application is available for both I-Phone or Android smart phones under “Be Healthy”.
