Construction of Phase One of the Latta University Historic Park began in Spring 2023 and will continue into late Summer 2023.

Once construction is complete, the next step will be finalizing the interpretive panels for the site. The Interpretive Committee has been hard at work finalizing the Interpretive Plan and using that to craft the signage for the park.

Additionally, following completion of construction, the LUHP Planting Plan will be implemented. This will focus on succession planting to maintain the wonderful tree canopy on site, as well as some focused replanting in areas impacted by construction.

Raleigh Parks would love to keep the community involved as construction wraps up, so please sign up here if you would like to hear about upcoming volunteer events this fall!

The opening celebration for the park is tentatively planned for Spring 2024!
