E. Carroll Joyner Park
The newest and largest park in Wake Forest, E. Carroll Joyner Park, opened in 2009. TPL worked closely with the Joyner family and Town of Wake Forest to preserve the 117-acre property, transforming this historic homestead into a lovely public park with trails, restored farm buildings, pecan groves, gardens and outdoor performance areas for concerts and events.
