The City of Raleigh, through the Raleigh Housing and Neighborhood Department, is facilitating the development of new single-family homes and townhome units in College Park, a neighborhood in East Raleigh.
As part of this housing development project, Fisher Street Park, originally located at 328 North Fisher Street, is being relocated to new site at the corner of North Fisher and Pender Streets, approximately one block away. The new park site is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in Summer 2022.
The new Fisher Street Park site will feature a playground, basketball court, picnic shelter, seating areas, and other amenities. Pender Street Park (also known as John Stokes Garden), at the corner of Pender and N. Carver Streets, is also undergoing site renovations including new walkways, seating areas, and landscaping. Construction for both park sites began in January 2022, starting with the demolition at the original Fisher Street Park site. The original Fisher Street Park site will be redeveloped into new housing
Following construction, an artist commissioned for this project will install new public artwork at both Fisher Street Park and John Stokes Memorial Garden.
The new Fisher Street Park and the improved John Stokes Memorial Garden will be places to play, relax, and enjoy the outdoors within the heart of College Park.
