In line for your favorite food truck. Front row at a Friday night movie showing. On your mat at a community yoga event. There’s 1.6 acres of intentionally designed green space in Bailey Park … you just have to find your spot.
Bailey Park is 1.6 acres of publicly accessible green space intentionally designed for every kind of park-goer. During the lunch hour, you’ll find people drawn by enticing smells from locally owned food trucks. Movie-lovers make their way here for regular viewings of fan-favorite films. Fitness gurus and beginners alike join each other on the lawn for free yoga. Festivals and events—such as Gears & Guitars and Juneteenth Festival—often fill the space with families, students and furry friends looking for weekend fun. The possibilities abound in this urban green space, complete with a natural amphitheater, hard seating and open lawn space.
Although once a mass of steam pipes, power lines and a parking lot, Bailey Park visionaries saw it as the perfect remedy to the need for a central gathering place in the growing innovation district. Years of intentional planning and a joint commitment between Wake Forest Baptist Health and Wexford Sciences + Technology helped make that vision a reality with its re-opening in 2015.
Bailey Park was designed for the community to enjoy—which means it was designed for you. So, whether you work, play, live or learn in and around the Innovation Quarter, you’re invited to grab a book, a Frisbee, a picnic blanket or a friend and find your spot in Bailey Park.

Today, Bailey Park is an integral piece of the Innovation Quarter that fits naturally in the heart of the district, but that didn’t happen overnight. When it opened fully to the public in 2015, it had been more than 10 years in the making. The team of people that dreamed up the park in 2003 recall the research and intentionality that went into making the vision a reality in an oral history of Bailey Park.
