In support of Wake County’s announcement of restrictions designed to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Town of Cary has closed playgrounds effective Monday, March 23 at 8 a.m. until further notice. Greenways, parks, and restrooms within parks will remain open at this time. Per Governor Cooper's Executive Order 147, masks are now required in all public spaces where social distancing is not possible at all times. Learn more.
Home of the Kids Together Playground, Marla Dorrel Park isn’t your typical suburban park. Unique elements include a dragon climbing structure named Katal, progressive design elements and landscaping, and a play area where kids of all physical and mental ability can enjoy fully-integrated play in a multi-sensory environment that challenges both muscles and minds.
The park connects to a pedestrian overpass linking it to MacDonald Woods Park. The trail crosses a stream that runs adjacent to the park and a small wetland can be found close by.
