City Council approved the park master plan at the April 17 meeting. A copy of the master plan is available on the project website in the Resources section.
The project will now move into Schematic Design Phase for the first phase of development. An additional opportunity to provide feedback on Schematic Design Phase will be scheduled when designs are 30 percent complete.
The 2014 Parks Bond includes funding for the Brentwood Park Master Plan and improvements to the existing park and neighborhood center. The Master Plan process is anticipated to take one year. Immediately following adoption of the Brentwood Park Master Plan by City Council, the schematic design phase will begin and will last for one year. Upon completion of the schematic design, construction will begin.
The City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department received City Council approval of the Situation Assessment and Citizen Planning Committee (CPC) members on March 21, 2017. During the planning phase of the project, the project was the subject of five CPC meetings, and three public meetings as outlined in the schedule section below. The situation assessment and presentation is available for download from the project website.

Brentwood Park is located at 3315 Vinson Court within the Brentwood Neighborhood in East Raleigh. The 19.2 acre property was acquired by the City to provide a public neighborhood park. Marsh Creek runs along the eastern boundary, separating the park from Brentwood Elementary School, feeding a marsh area south including an adjacent 6.7 acre public greenway land parcel. There is an 1,000 square foot neighborhood center on the site, as well as open space, sports fields with support facilities, tennis and basketball courts, a playground, and creekside trails connecting to the adjacent neighborhood.
