Keeley Park is now part of the North Carolina Community Fishing Program. As a participant of this program, catchable-sized channel catfish are stocked in the ponds April through September. The Community Fishing Program allows for catching and keeping up to six catfish per day. We have also stocked our ponds with bass, bream and bluegill, but ask that you allow these fish time to grow so a catch and release program with these fish can be put into place soon.
Keeley Community Garden plots are still available and can be reserved by calling 336-373-4549. Plots are $25 each and are designed to give residents places to enjoy the pleasures of growing produce for themselves and sharing with others. Interested individuals should complete the garden plot application and submit to Brooks Mullane along with payment. The operation of the community gardens will be a combined effort involving the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Master Gardeners, and Parks and Recreation staff members. This Community Gardens Brochure answers most questions about the project. For information on proper gardening techniques, view the Home Vegetable Gardening Handbook provided by North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension. The community garden is a great place to grow healthy snacks for you and your family.
