Dorothea Dix Park is the site of one of the most exciting new park projects in America. The 308-acre site blends historic architecture and rich landscapes into a unique destination in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina. Today, all of the green space is open for the public to enjoy - seven days a week, sunrise to sunset.

In February 2019, Raleigh City Council unanimously approved the master plan for the long-term vision of the park.
