Parks & Recreation

The Town of Selma Parks and Recreation Department recognizes that recreation is a valuable part of life and it seeks to promote enjoyable, constructive leisure and recreational activities that will meet the needs of the surrounding community it serves. The commitment to health education, entertainment, and high morality will be emphasized through all activities and programs conducted or sponsored by the Recreation Department. The Recreation Department will strive to maintain activities that are beneficial to current population needs and create programs that are considered appropriate to the changing needs of the area in and around Selma.

Who we are …. What we do

The Recreation Department sponsors a wide range of youth, adult, and senior athletic programs throughout the year. For youth we provide football, cheerleading, wrestling, soccer,  fast-pitch softball, basketball, baseball, T-ball, and coach-pitch. For adults we offer church softball league.  For our senior adults, we offer pickleball and line dancing along with the Johnston County Senior Games. Festivals, special events, and special programs are provided throughout the year as well. The largest of these events is the Selma Railroad Days Festival that is held during the first weekend of October featuring live entertainment, food, vendors, a children’s area, parade, hollerin’ contest and much more. Selma Saturdays Arts & Crafts Market, the All-American Festival and the Christmas Parade are other events sponsored by the Parks and Recreation department that enhance the livability of our community. Recreation facilities operated by our department include neighborhood parks, tennis courts, a gymnasium, outdoor basketball courts, picnic shelters, and baseball/softball fields. Many facilities are available to rent for birthday parties, company picnics, family reunions, and other functions.
