We know you don’t need an excuse to head to the Innovation Quarter, but sometimes it’s nice to have one. There are plenty of ways to enjoy Bailey Park when the sun is shining and there’s a cool breeze floating through the air. Here are some of our favorites:
Get Centered with Yoga at Sunset Salutations
Need a way to unwind and clear your mind? You won’t find one better than Sunset Salutations. This free signature event series will help you practice flexibility, connect with your community and experience the healing power of outdoor yoga. Held on the last Thursday of every month through October, Sunset Salutations is a much-needed mid-week solace from life’s daily grind.
Dive into the Summer’s Must-read Book
Grab a book from Bookmarks or the Forsyth County Central Library—both of which are a few short blocks away from Bailey Park—and stake out your spot. Whether you want to lounge in the grass or settle into a bench on the sidewalk, Bailey Park is a peaceful place to take in your next read.
Catch a Movie at Innovation & Cinema
Brought to you by a/perture and the Innovation Quarter, Innovation & Cinema is a signature event series held on Bailey Park’s lower lawn. Come early to make sure you get the best seat in the park. Revel in blockbuster movies about science, technology, engineering and mathematics while enjoying food, drink and a night under the stars. Innovation & Cinema isn’t just about entertainment; this year’s movie lineup also exemplifies the importance of representation and diversity in entertainment, both in front and behind the camera.
Enjoy a Meal with Friends
With an all-star lineup of daily food trucks and a plethora of exciting restaurants, your friends won’t have to argue about where to grab your next meal together: Simply order your favorite meal to go and meet up in Baily Park. Throw a blanket on the lawn to soak up some extra sunshine or seek shade under one of the umbrellas scattered throughout Upper Bailey Park to enjoy your meal. Either way—the food will always taste better outside with friends.
Work Outside with Free Wi-Fi
Fresh air, patio tables, regularly maintained restrooms and free Wi-Fi. That’s all you need to shake up your workday. While Bailey Park is often the place to take a break from life’s hustle and bustle, it can also be the change of scenery you need to power through the last pages of a paper or collaborate with teammates on your next big idea. Connect to Wi-Fi via the IQGuest network, and it’ll almost be like you never left the office.
