Turf Field

Our 20,000 square foot astroturf field is where we hold various group fitness classes, personal training sessions, small group training classes/programs, recreational activities (like badminton), and many youth activities. This fenced-in space is for Wellness center activities and member use only.

Do you need a place to exercise outdoors or just spend some fun family time? The UNC Wellness Centers at NW Cary allow the use of the fenced-in turf field during daylight hours for exercise and play. You are welcome to bring your own exercise or sports equipment, but please be respectful and careful of others when using the turf field. Please note, that children under 13 have to be directly supervised at all times.  Please check-in at the Wellness Center front desk prior to using the field and note that there will be limited space during outdoor group exercise classes.
