The capital of North Carolina, Raleigh is famed for its many universities and its technological research parks. However, there's much more to the city than its academic side, particularly if you're interested in spending some time outside. An excellent assortment of parks can be found in and around the city, offering a wide variety of recreational opportunities, including historical carousels and amusement parks, large networks of walking paths, and plenty of sports courts and multi-use fields. A trip to Raleigh wouldn't be complete without paying a visit to at least one of its wonderful parks, and here are the best ones to choose from. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.
