Bailey Park

Urban green space in the heart of the Innovation Quarter

The 1.6-acre urban green space provides a flexible outdoor “living room” for those who live, work and play in the Innovation Quarter. Bailey Park hosts a variety of free community activities, from yoga and film screenings, to food trucks and festivals. These events make use of the park’s amenities, including a covered stage, restroom facilities, a food truck court and a large grassy lawn.

But the park is for more than events—whether a weekday or weekend, you can always find a host of people walking, lounging or playing in the park. Check out the full calendar of events or just come and visit with some friends—including the four-footed ones!

Designed for the community to enjoy, Bailey Park is a place to take a break from work and studying. It’s a place to soak up the sunshine, enjoy the fresh air and relax with friends, family or colleagues.

Long Branch Trail

Long Branch Trail

The Long Branch Trail provides nearly two miles of multi-use greenway for the public in the heart of downtown Winston-Salem. Named for the historic community once located in the area now known as the Innovation Quarter, the trail connects the innovation district to the city, as well as to the larger system of greenways running through the city. Long Branch Trail runs into the Salem Creek Greenway, giving users access to a 20-mile loop from the north end of the Innovation Quarter to Salem Lake and back. Access the greenway from the north at Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Seventh Street behind the Inmar building, East Fourth Street near the Piedmont Leaf Lofts and the parking lot on the east side of the Third Street bridge.

Innovation Quarter Patios

Spots Just for Hanging Out

The Innovation Quarter features many patios where you and a bevy of buddies can enjoy the outdoor air. Both Biotech Place and Bowman Gray Center for Medical Education feature outdoor seating for causal meetups. The Coal Pit at Bailey Power Plant not only puts you close to food and drink, but also hosts occasional concerts. Here, you’ll find ample outdoor seating, restaurant patrons and an ideal place to relax with friends and family.  The courtyard at One Technology Place adds a little art to the outdoors, featuring a triple helix sculpture created by local sculptor Duncan Lewis in addition to its large outdoor seating area.
