Raleigh City Council approves Dorothea Dix Park master plan

Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The Raleigh City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the Dorothea Dix Park master plan –  paving the way for the land to become a park. 

The approved plan provides the framework that will be used to mold the 308-acre site into Dorothea Dix Park.

The process leading up to the plan’s approval has lasted more than two years. 

The City and Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy worked together to “create a park for everyone, built by everyone.”

The City called this a once-in-a-generation opportunity. 

“The chance to create a new urban park this size in the center of a city is remarkable—and simply unparalleled in the United States today,” the city said in a release.
