The Recreation Department provides year-round programs for various age groups to enhance the life for Blowing Rock citizens and visitors. Included in the recreation activities and events are a summer day camp, a pool program, weekly park activities and programs, a gym program, special community events, and other related activities.

The summer day camp was established in 1987. Historically, day camp has had an attendance of approximately 80 children per week. Although many of the day camp activities are conducted at the Town's park facilities (Memorial Park, the swimming pool, Davant Field, etc.), local field trips are also scheduled to take advantage of area recreational opportunities.

In addition to the day camp, the department also operates a summer park program at Memorial Park and Davant Field. Some of the scheduled programs include tennis, basketball, volleyball, softball, playground activities, family fun activities, as well as special events and tournaments. The goals of the programs include participation, sportsmanship and fun.

The Grover C. Robbins Memorial Swimming Pool is one of only two outdoor, public-use swimming pools in Watauga County. The facility includes one large, multi-use pool and a smaller wading pool. The pools are heated. The pool facility also includes shower and dressing facilities, restrooms, and a concession area with snack and drink machines.
