Save Dorothea Dix Campus for a World Class Destination Park

Create a Central Park for North Carolina on the Dorothea Dix Campus To the General Assembly of North Carolina, the County Commissioners of Wake County and the City Council of Raleigh Preserve the whole Dorothea Dix Campus for a world class destination park. It is the right thing to do for our children and grandchildren, our economic vitality, and to preserve our quality of life. This is the last opportunity to create a great destination park in Raleigh, the Capitol City of North Carolina. There are only 306 acres remaining of approximately 2000 original acres of the Dorothea Dix Campus, and it is important to preserve it all for a great destination park. 306 acres is barely enough for a park of this stature, so we must save it all so we have space for both the attractions, the open space, and the connections to its neighbors.

Discussion

  • Mario Passera It would be foolish and short-sighted to rob the city of a chance to have a major draw in the vain of Central Park. Housing/business developments can be done elsewhere, but the quality life and tourism value that this park would bring for decades to come is invaluable.
