City Lake Park Renovation, Expansion & Master Plan

City of High Point Parks & Recreation Renovation to be completed Fall 2023 Recreation High Point, NC 16,231 square feet; 9 acres (site design, approx.) Back to Projects

City Lake Park has been a staple of the High Point community for over 90 years. With several nearby buildings recognized by the Jamestown historic district as dating back well into the 1800s as well as the park itself dating back to the 1930s, the citizens of High Point celebrate and honor their past. With that in mind, our design team sought to create a place that not only recognizes the Park’s illustrious history, but also provide citizens with a connection to the past that can be maintained and showcased for future generations.

HH Architecture developed a two-phase master plan that provided several infrastructure and facility recommendations to the approximately 243.3-acre park. The master plan aimed to meet the changing needs of the community while preserving the Park’s meaningful history.

The City has since hired the HH Architecture team to complete the work outlined in phase-one of the master plan which includes the renovation of the 6,800 SF gymnasium into a multipurpose meeting center with offices, remodeling locker rooms and the concessions area, and the renovation to the outdoor swimming pool to include 50-meter pool, splash pad, lifestyle pool, and new water slide.

Several site improvements will be included in this project by providing a Great Lawn and stage, a bridge across the lake that will connect High Point City Lake Park to the Piedmont Environmental Center, High Point Greenway, and the Bicentennial Greenway, additional parking, and enhanced connectivity throughout the Park.
