City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources invites you to join us on a walking tour of Dorothea Dix Park. Tours start at 6 PM and 8 PM.
On July 24th, 2015, the City of Raleigh purchased the Dorothea Dix Campus from the State of North Carolina for the purpose of developing a destination park. The planning and development of Dorothea Dix Park represents one of the most exciting and ambitious new park projects in America.
The free 2-hour, 3.5 mile tour will cover the history of the buildings, land, and legacy of Dorothea Dix, the current use of the area as the headquarters of the Department of Health and Human Services and the steps the City will take in planning a future park.
