The City of Arts & Innovation will soon have a new urban park, giving the community a new place to play, Bailey Park at East End.

Located on the corner of Fourth Street and Patterson Avenue in downtown Winston-Salem, construction on the park will start the week of March 17. The park is expected to open in the early fall of this year.

The new 1.6-acre park, which will be available for the public, will add to the creative work and play spaces that are part of the essence of the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter. Plans for the community-based park include movie nights and other cultural and music events.

Three local companies, Stimmel Associates, P.A. STITCH Design + Development and LMI Builders, will work together to create a harmonious setting for the park that is designed to encourage community interaction.

Building materials will reference the history of the area, while their application and detailing will look to the future. Against the backdrop of a former industrial complex, Bailey Park solidifies the Innovation Quarter as just one more reason to come to work, live, learn and play.
