Jaycee Park Improvements
Jaycee Park Re-Paving Project
Work will begin Monday, September 26, 2016 on a re-paving project at Jaycee Park. Phase one work will involve the demolition and re-paving of the parking lot in front of the Frank Evans building. Phase two will involve demolition and re-paving of the service road between Frank Evans Administration Office and the Jaycee Softball Field #1. All offices will remain open. City of Raleigh Recycling Station will be located temporarily near Jaycee Field #3 with access from Tower St. Limited parking will remain available in front of Jaycee Center and additional parking is available at the volleyball and tennis courts. We expect the project to be completed and open for use by February 2017.
Jaycee Park Dog Run
Work will begin Monday, September 26, 2016 on the construction of the City’s new off leash dog facility at Jaycee Park.

Installation of fencing, concrete entrance, connecting sidewalk, signage and surfacing will follow. We expect the facility to be completed and opened for use by early Spring, 2017.
