Thank you for participating in the Design Alternates Online Survey! Click here to view the results.


Building on the insights gained from the previous phases, the project team will synthesize community feedback to craft a preliminary vision of the park's future. This Draft Concept Plan will reflect the priorities, preferences, and aspirations voiced by the community, weaving together the strengths of the Alternative Concepts. Following this phase, we will carefully refine and integrate the community's input to create a final, well-rounded concept plan that balances and aligns with the needs and desires expressed by the community.


See below for more details about our next drop-in public workshop.

Upcoming Public Site Visits 

During the public site visits, our aim is to engage with current park visitors and to help explain the proposed plans for the future Neuse River Park. This event will have content similar to the Public Workshop but presented on site! Staff will be in attendance with information boards available at three different stations along the Neuse River Greenway adjacent to the future park. These are informational events and we encourage everyone to provide their detailed feedback through the online survey or at the Public Workshop.


Draft Concept Plan:

Friday, June 28, 2024 from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Saturday, June 29, 2024 from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.


Parking is available at the existing greenway trailhead parking at 12030 Old Falls of Neuse Rd. 

Current Project Status

The Neuse River Park project is now in the Master Plan phase. There will be many more touchpoints with the community throughout the coming year, and we hope to hear from you! We of course agree that everyone who will be impacted by this project has a right to participate, and we welcome all to stay involved throughout the planning process.


Previous Project Milestones

The Parks, Recreation and Greenway Advisory Board approved the Neuse River Park Situation Assessment on October 19, 2023. A Situation Assessment is an analysis of the local context around a project, to help staff determine the best way to effectively engage the community in a collaborative process. The Situation Assessment also identifies the Community Advisory Group (CAG), which is a membership-specific committee that provides oversight of the project planning process and ensures that decisions include a broad representation of the community and stakeholders impacted by the project.
