Hill Street Park Center

City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources 2012 Recreation Raleigh, NC 4,000 Back to Projects

Developed in collaboration with the master plan for the surrounding 16 acres of wooded parkland, the Hill Street Park Center includes program and event space to serve surrounding neighborhoods. Through its design and its orientation on the site, the facility will allow residents to foster a stronger connection with the outdoors, as well as provide recreational space for all ages.

Sustainable design forms a strong part of every aspect of this facility, from its planted green roof to its water and energy reduction strategies. The design integrates durable construction materials to reduce maintenance and extend the life of the building. The use of daylighting reduces the need for artificial lighting.

The facility includes three public multipurpose rooms of various sizes suited to different activities. Distinguished by its distinctive form and naturally day-lit interior spaces and covered outdoor education space, the building will accommodate a wide variety of neighborhood assemblies, programmed activities, and events.
