Raleigh’s Jaycee Park is located just south of Wade Avenue, not far from Cameron Village. The Jaycee Park is home to a community center that contains meeting rooms, a gym, and a weight room. It also contains a couple of lighted ball fields, some sand volleyball courts and a small ‘vintage’ playground. The community center is slated to be renovated, with work completing in June of 2012.
The Jaycee Park is dominated by beautiful old oaks and wooded trails run along a stream on the western side of the park. They connect to a bit of greenway that will take you to the Rose Garden near the Raleigh Little Theater. On the Raleigh Nature blog, John Dancy-Jones picked a waterfall in this part of the park as his favorite spot to listen to water. It’s surprisingly peaceful to be located so close to downtown and busy Wade Ave.
If you visit the park, be sure to check out the garden of daylillies that the Raleigh Hemerocallis Club maintains near the Jaycee Module.
