Fisher Street Park Relocation Project

Part of the East College Park development plan

The City of Raleigh, through the Raleigh Housing and Neighborhood Department, is facilitating the development of new single-family homes and townhome units in the East College Park development.  As part of this development, the existing Fisher Street Park, located at 328 North Fisher Street, is planned for relocation to a new parcel at the corner of North Fisher and Pender Streets, approximately one block away.

Planning

The amenities for the new park site will feature playground and basketball court areas, similar to the programming at the existing park site. The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department developed two conceptual site designs for public review.

Design

Managed by Raleigh Parks, in cooperation with Housing and Neighborhoods, the Fisher Street Park relocation project is currently in the design phase.  The amenities for the new park site will feature a playground, basketball court, and seating areas similar to the programming at the existing park site.  In addition, an artist will be commissioned to prepare public artwork for the site.  The new park location will allow for the development of an improved park space to play, relax, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors in the heart of East College Park.

History

The East College Park development is part of a Council-approved plan to increase the availability of affordable housing in East Raleigh. The development consists of approximately 150 single-family homes and townhomes. Learn more about the East College Park Development

The development plan calls for the relocation of the existing Fisher Street Park, originally constructed in the late 1960s. The current park site will be used for the construction of new single-family homes. The future site for Fisher Street Park will be on the same block, approximately 400 feet to the south of its current location.  

Funding for this project is provided through a Community Development Block Grant coordinated by the Housing & Neighborhoods Department.
