History

Heritage High School Park was constructed at the back of the 65-acre campus of Heritage High School on Forestville Road. The Park opened for use in 2009, and the school opened the following year. Both the park and the school are part of the Master Plan for the Heritage community of Wake Forest. The property had been the site of the Ammons family farm.  The family sold the property to the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS), and WCPSS built the fields at a cost of about $4 million. The Park project is part of a Joint Use Agreement between WCPSS and the Town of Wake Forest, which provides the fields to be open for use by the public after 6:00 PM and on weekends, when school teams are not using the facilities.

The Park consists of 2 multipurpose soccer fields, 2 fields for baseball and softball, 6 lighted tennis courts, and restroom facilities.  The Park is also the site of the popular annual Wake Forest Fireworks Spectacular for the Town’s July 4th celebration.
