Nice urban park in central Raleigh dating back to 1792. We walked by in July 2018. The park is currently closed for construction. It is expected to reopen in 2019.

No need to visit this high crime area park unless there is a festival. The government holds various festivals in this city block and you can judge each on its merits. There were once four such squares. One became the governor's mansion. Another is half...More
