Flaherty Park Field 2 Renovation Project


Updated March 13, 2024

Field 2 at J.B. Flaherty Park, 1100 N. White St., is closed for renovation and upgrades.

In March 2024 the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department initiated the first phase of a comprehensive renovation project at Field 2 that will include:

  • Demolition of the existing stairs leading up to the field, concrete walkways, bleachers, dugouts, backstop; and a portion of the perimeter baseball field fencing.

  • Construction of new stairs and walkways leading up to the field, gated entry, concrete walkways, shaded seating areas, dugouts, bullpens, irrigation system modifications, tension netting backstop with decorative knee wall, baseball field fencing, decorative fencing around the perimeter of the site, and electrical and landscape improvements.

Signage is posted around the field to inform the public of the closure. Flaherty Park visitors are urged to stay off the field and avoid the construction area.

The total cost of the phase one renovations and upgrades is $944,000.

Weather permitting, the work will be completed in early June.
