Millbrook Exchange Park is best known for its swimming pool and its tennis center but also includes other very popular features. A popular venue for area swim clubs, the pool was renovated in 2007 to include a bubble that allows year-round use. The nearby wading pool and spray-ground are seasonal. The tennis center offers 23 hard surface courts with lights as well as a pro-shop and a conference center.
Millbrook Exchange Park is home to Raleigh’s oldest off-leash dog park. The park is open to dogs from sunrise until the lights go out — usually around 10pm. The Friends of Millbrook Dog Park keeps up with events and updates of interest to area dog owners.
The community center at the Millbrook Exchange Park includes classrooms, basketball courts and a weight room and offers a variety of programs for all ages including art, educational and fitness activities. The center is also open for rentals for parties or meetings. Center staff are always willing to help you with your leisure needs.
Just outside the community center is a brand new playground area completed in June 2013. The playground area includes play areas for tots and older children and has a sand pit, swings and a rubber surface. The park also includes 3 lighted ball fields and 2 basketball courts.
On May 12th, 2010, Jim Gallucci’s sculpture, “Immigrant Gate II” was installed at the Millbrook Exchange Park in North Raleigh. This sculpture is a great addition to an already multi-faceted park.The 12-foot-high powder-coated steel sculpture moved from it’s previous home near the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts downtown due to the opening of the Raleigh Convention Center. Jim Gallucci is responsible for other popular works in Raleigh, including the gates in front of the Marbles Kids’ Museum and the light towers in Raleigh’s City Plaza.
The new Anne Gordan Center for Active Adults is now open and features several modern classrooms, a large lobby, kitchen and library.
