Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Gardens Dedication

Event posted Dec. 22, 2016 - 11:28 am

The City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department invites you to the dedication of the newly renovated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Gardens on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 11 a.m. The park is located at 900 Rock Quarry Road, Raleigh, NC 27610 at the corner of MLK Jr Boulevard and Rock Quarry Road.

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Gardens was originally constructed in 1990 through the efforts of a number of park advocates including the Martin Luther King Committee. In 2003, the City acquired 1.67 acres of vacant land adjacent to the park for the purpose of expanding the existing Memorial Gardens. The additional amenities are intended to make the park more user and family-friendly through better meeting the needs of the visiting public, including school children, college students and elderly citizens.

Please RSVP to rsvp@raleighnc.gov or 919-996-4818

Parking will be available for the dedication at 909 Rock Quarry Road and 1001 Rock Quarry Road.
