Brentwood Park


Brentwood Park Improvements

The 2014 Parks Bond funded the creation of the Brentwood Park Master Plan and will provide funding for design and construction of Phase One. Phase One will include refinishing the parking lot, a new comfort station, picnic shelter, and playground.

Phase One is guided by the Brentwood Park Master Plan.  The master planning process began with a Situation Assessment, which was approved by the City Council on March 21, 2017.  The Master Plan for the park was developed after, occurring over several months. It was the subject of five Citizen Planning Committee meetings and three public meetings.  The Brentwood Park Master Plan was approved by City Council on April 17, 2018.

This phase is complete.


Brentwood Park Phase One will include a new playground with a combined comfort station and picnic shelter building. The improvements at the park will also include a reconfigured and resurfaced parking lot, and a sidewalk from Brentwood Road into the park. The master plan for the park, approved by City Council in April 2018, prioritized these features to be built first.

Brentwood Park is located at 3315 Vinson Court within the Brentwood Neighborhood in East Raleigh. The 19.2 acre property was acquired by the City to provide a public neighborhood park. Marsh Creek runs along the eastern boundary, separating the park from Brentwood Elementary School, feeding a marsh area south including an adjacent 6.7 acre public greenway land parcel. There is an 1,000 square foot neighborhood center on the site, as well as open space, sports fields with support facilities, tennis and basketball courts, a playground, and creekside trails connecting to the adjacent neighborhood.
