Former Quarry Brings Community Together

Quarry Park is the most visited park in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The park sits on the former location of the Piedmont Quarry, which operated from the mid-1920s through the early 1970s. The quarry site and surrounding land were donated to the city by Vulcan Materials Company in 1998.

Quarry Park opened in August 2017 and features more than 200 acres of mostly wooded land, a deep lake and an overlook with spectacular views of the city and nearby mountains.  In addition to the beautiful views, visitors can take advantage of well-paved biking and walking paths. Admission to the park is free.
