Recreation Offerings

Our 7,000 acres are filled with much more than just large companies and parking lots. We take pride in providing an environment that is pleasing to work in, and fun to play in. Our various leagues provide an outlet for group sports play, and our miles of walking and biking trails provide that one-on-one time with nature everyone needs.

Trails are open to everyone – all we ask is that you respect the land.

Athletic fields are available for pickup games. RTP employees can make softball field and volleyball court reservations by contacting Reservations may be made up to 2 weeks in advance for a maximum of 4 hours each. RTP leagues and RTP company events have priority use of fields.
