The park is a 174-acre wildlife refuge and an environmental research center. Please note that dogs (except identifiable service animals) and other pets are not allowed. Learn more

We want to see how you get out and play in Wake County! Through November, we are celebrating our parks and nature preserves with our 2nd annual Instagram photo contest. We encourage you to check out the contest details.
