​Help Rename North Wake Landfill District Park

Suggestions will be accepted throughout October

Don’t judge a book by its cover. Or in this case, don’t judge a park by its name. For seven years, North Wake Landfill District Park has offered spectacular views and recreational amenities for visitors of all ages in north Raleigh. While the park is enjoyed by visitors, its name can sometimes be a source of confusion. This fall, Wake County is planning to rename the popular park and is asking for suggestions from the community.

Situated at the site of the closed North Wake Landfill, the park opened to visitors in 2010. It features a playground for children, picnic tables and shelters, walking trails, mountain biking trails and a multi-use trail that gives walkers, runners and bikers a view of the downtown Raleigh skyline on a clear day.

Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space will accept suggestions for a new name for North Wake Landfill District Park through Oct. 31. Suggestions can be submitted online via the park’s webpage or their Facebook page. Visitors can also fill out a suggestion card at North Wake Landfill District Park and nearby Blue Jay Point County Park.

Suggestions must include the words “County Park.” The county will not consider suggestions that include the name of a living person. The new name is expected to be announced by early 2018.
