The land for this park was left by Dr. Annie Wilkerson and has a total of 157 acres in North Raleigh off Raven Ridge Road.
When it first opened, I checked out all the trails and my personal favorite was through the forest, down the meadow, past the farm pond, and then heading for the rock outcropping. There seemed to be a problem within the first year with fire ants and, at one point through the meadow, I got bites on my feet and ankles (I had on shoes and socks!).
This park is very family friendly with programs for children, including backpacks for them to take on their hike with binoculars, a magnifying glass, compass, etc.
Another trail has been added to the forest loop which takes you to Falls Lake.
