Visit the Park

Getting to Dix Park

There are multiple entrances to Dorothea Dix Park. The most widely used entrances are Hunt Drive at Western Boulevard, South Boylan Avenue at Western Boulevard, Umstead Drive at Lake Wheeler Road, and Goode Street at Lake Wheeler Road.  Because this is an active staff campus for the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for the next few years, parking at Dorothea Dix Park is limited during business hours. On weekends, visitors may park in any of the parking areas striped green.

Hours

Dorothea Dix Park is open daily (including holidays) from dawn to dusk. Hours for events vary. Please note that areas of the park may be closed occasionally for maintenance or events.
