See the City from Dorothea Dix


Dorothea Dix Park is a natural gem in downtown Raleigh. You'll come back again and again to keep enjoying the way this park's green beauty is contrasted against the city's skyline!

By Mandy Holt
Dorothea Dix Park is one of Raleigh's best spots to enjoy a little fresh air and some fantastic views of the Oak City. Located near Boylan Heights, this 308-acre park has spots that are perfect for picnicking while Fido frolics in the grassy fields. Bring out your favorite blanket and cozy up for an afternoon of reading or go for a run on the scenic roads that wind in and out of the property. Entrance is free, and the beauty is a bonus!
