Robbins Park is a multiphase, joint venture project, between Westmoreland Lake LLC, Mecklenburg County, and the Town of Cornelius. These three partners collaborated to design a park and residential community, The Preserve at Robbins Park. The crescent area opened in September 2011. Phase II opened in April 2015.

The two tennis courts are not lighted but they do include pickleball lines.

Robbins Park Master Plan

The original Robbins Park Master Plan was adopted in 2008 and, since that time, several phases have been completed in accordance with the original vision. Since the population of Cornelius has grown and changed over time, along with its citizens' needs, wants, and interests, the Cornelius Parks & Recreation Department is re-envisioning the plan for the next phases of Robbins Park. Public input for this new Draft Master Plan has come from two public workshops held in February and August 2019, one public workshop held in June 2021, and two online surveys.

Next steps:    

The public is invited to attend the Parks & Recreation Commission meeting on Thursday, September 2, at Town Hall. The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. At this meeting, the commissioners will consider the Draft Master Plan for recommendation to the Cornelius Town Board for final approval.

CYANOBACTERIA ALERT for southern pond at Robbins Park

Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) are natural organisms that are present in most lakes.  Certain conditions can cause cyanobacteria to bloom and release toxins.  Exposure to toxic algae, either through ingestion or skin contact, can cause rashes, skin and eye irritation, allergic reactions, gastrointestinal problems or, at high doses, serious illness or even death.  Keep away from the water’s edge for your safety.  Until further notice, we encourage park visitors to avoid contact with all ponds. Do not allow pets to enter or drink from any pond, and keep dogs on a leash to minimize the chance of coming into contact with the water. Swimming by dogs or people is prohibited.  PLEASE KEEP PETS OUT OF THE WATER! 

This warning is only for ponds. Creeks and streams with flowing water are not typically impacted by blue-green algae that grows when water does not move. For more information visit
