Plaza & Play

One of the first projects to move forward is the design of the Plaza & Play area along Lake Wheeler Road.  The plaza and play area will be a new, principle entrance to the park.

As described in the Master Plan, visitors from across the City and around the State will be welcomed with play spaces for all ages, spectacular fountains, great public art, grand plazas, cookout zones, gardens and shaded areas to relax and enjoy with family and friends.

The Chapel

Another exciting project is the renovation of the chapel by the Dix Park Conservancy.  Once rehabilitated, the chapel and grounds will provide a place of reflection and celebration for the community.

The light-filled chapel will be available for a variety of events and activities including concerts, history lectures, arts performances and exhibits, family weddings and more.  The event lawn, front terrace and back gardens will provide a beautiful and serene setting for coming together as a community.
