Cary Theater & Other Facilities to Begin Opening

Beginning this week, the Town of Cary will begin opening facilities that have been closed since March 2020. Those Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources venues include the Cary Theater, the Cary Senior Center, and the Cary Arts Center.

Some facilities will open with limited summer hours, and more facilities will open in July, including Stevens Nature Center at Hemlock Bluffs and The Hive.

“This is a huge step in bringing the places and people that make Cary so special together,” said Doug McRainey, director of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources. “We’re so excited to be able to safely host programs, events and classes that allow us all to learn and have fun together in person, and to add those to the virtual and outdoor programs we’ve offered throughout the past year just makes it more special.”

The Town of Cary will offer a combination of virtual, outdoor, and indoor programs this summer. A listing of offerings and registration can be found in myCary, with pre-registration for July programs starting June 22.
