About Forest Ridge Park

Forest Ridge is a 586-acre peninsula on Falls Lake located between Falls Dam and Highway 98. It is owned by the United States Army Corps of Engineers and managed by the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The City of Raleigh and these two agencies agreed to a multi-agency partnership to prepare a master plan for the site. Funds for Phase I development were approved by the public in the 2003 Parks and Recreation Bond Referendum.
