PRCR to host second public meeting Saturday on proposed Skate Park, Pump Track & Basketball Court, still time to complete online survey

Wednesday, February 28, 2024 - 2:02pm

In December 2023, the Town of Wake Forest purchased 8.3 acres of land adjacent to Devon Square and E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road. On Saturday, March 2, the Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department will host the second and final public meeting to solicit input from residents concerning the proposed construction of a skate park, pump track, and basketball court on this property. The first meeting occurred on February 21.

Saturday’s meeting is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. in the Walker Room at the Joyner Park Community Center (JPCC), 701 Harris Road. The Walker Room is located on the second floor of JPCC.

The session will include a brief presentation, followed by an open discussion where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share suggestions. Town staff, members of the PRCR Advisory Board, and representatives from Kimley Horn will be on hand to answer questions and gather public input.

In the meantime, residents and stakeholders are invited to visit and provide their input via an online survey. Available through Sunday, March 10, the survey consists of seven questions and takes less than five minutes to complete. For more information, email PRCR Director Ruben Wall at [email protected].
