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, was relocated to new site at the corner of North Fisher and Pender Streets, approximately one block away. The original Fisher Street Park site will be redeveloped into new housing.
Construction of the new park site was completed in Summer 2022 with landscaping installed in Fall 2022. The new Fisher Street Park site features a playground, basketball court, picnic shelter, seating areas, trellis swings, landscaping, and other amenities. In addition, the park showcases new public artwork highlighting the people and history of the College Park neighborhood.
Pender Street Park (also known as John Stokes Garden), at the corner of Pender and N. Carver Streets, was included in the project with a new walkway, seating areas, and landscaping.
