MAY 2, 2018


Not your typical work session - - come prepared to explore, experience and engage

with other design professionals to help create the future of Dix Park!


Dorothea Dix Park is one of the most significant urban park projects in the US today. The 308-acre site blends historic architecture and rich landscapes into a unique destination in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina. City of Raleigh is currently working on the master plan for the long term vision of the park. The region has an extraordinary opportunity with Dix Park - the chance to create a new public space, of this size, in the heart of a city is truly remarkable.
