Parks of the Peak: Apex Nature Park & Seymour Athletic Fields

Home to our town’s only disc golf course, one of two dog parks, and an annual Outdoor Movie & Music Series every summer (aka the newly-named “Peak City Circuit”), Apex Nature Park and the connecting Seymour Athletic Fields are always bustling with activity! Whether you’re a nature lover, sports enthusiast, or just looking for a relaxing day outside, these parks have something for everyone.


Playing a round of Disc Golf at Apex Nature Park even made it on my list of 13 Things to do in Apex this Spring!



At a Glance - Apex Nature Park:

  • 160 Acres Across Both Sections

  • Dog Park (Registration Required)

  • 18-Hole Disc Golf Course

  • Amphitheatre

  • Paved Paths with Environmental Education Stations

  • Picnic Shelter

  • Restrooms


At a Glance - Seymour Athletic Fields:

  • Multi-Age Playground

  • Lighted Tennis Courts

  • Pickleball Courts

  • Lighted Multipurpose Fields

  • Sand Volleyball Courts

  • Picnic Shelter

  • Restrooms

  • Access to Multiple Trails


First up, Apex Nature Park. This beautiful park is home to one of two public dog parks. I love that there are shaded picnic areas located inside the park for the humans, as well as benches throughout and sources of water for the dogs.





The park is also divided up into sections by size - one for the small dogs and the other for larger dogs. Before you take your dog to play, be sure to register your dog(s) for a membership.



Definitely don’t miss the Peak City Circuit (formerly called Outdoor Summer Movie and Music Series) every year from June to August! Throughout the summer, enjoy either a concert or outdoor movie at the amphitheater beginning at 7:00 PM on Saturday evenings.



You’ll want to pack lawn chairs, blankets, and a nice picnic dinner to enjoy during the event, but be sure to leave pets and alcohol behind.



If you’re up for a game of disc golf, check out the 18-hole course that winds through 100-year-old pine trees. The holes are mostly shaded (making it a great activity even on a hotter summer day) and provide 3 levels of difficulty.




Check out the course map and print a score card ahead of your visit. My one big tip is to avoid playing here for a few days following a heavy rain, as the course does get pretty muddy.



Or simply enjoy a walk the trails and stop at the Environmental Education Stations to learn along the way.




Next up, Seymour Athletic Fields. This mega complex features a basketball court, sand volleyball courts, tennis and pickleball courts (that are a very popular spot these days!). Come out to watch or join a pick-up game!






If you’re looking for something more relaxing, take a leisurely stroll on the walking trails over to Apex Nature Park, check out the garden area with bees and butterflies, or enjoy some shade underneath the picnic shelter while your kids play on the playground.






The playground is located right next to the picnic shelter with bathrooms, soda machine, and water fountain.



It's a cute tree house-themed structure with a large climbing boulder, multiple slides, and fun obstacles all around. This area makes a great spot for a kid’s birthday party or just a spot to hang out and cool off after playing on one of the many athletic fields.




Overall, Apex Nature Park and Seymour Athletic Fields are two of the best outdoor spots in Apex! Whether you’re looking for an active day or a relaxing one, these parks have got you covered. So grab your walking shoes or sports gear, pack a picnic, and head out to enjoy all that these parks have to offer.


Located at 2500 and 2600 Evans Road, the park is open year-round from 6:30 AM to 10:00 PM. Go to the Town of Apex website for information on how to reserve the picnic shelter for a birthday party or other gathering if you’re interested.
