Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park
Art in the Park
The Park’s trail system leads visitors through natural areas and to commissioned works of art. Designed for hiking, walking, and jogging only, the unpaved natural trails allow visitors to deeply experience art and nature. Cyclists and self-propelled wheeled vehicles may travel on the paved trails only.
The Reedy Creek Greenway system is a paved multiuse pathway that runs through west Raleigh and connects the eastern portion of the Park to Meredith College and N.C. State University via a pedestrian bridge. The greenway connects the western portion of the NCMA Park to Umstead State Park and Schenck Forest.
