Overview

Named for early 19th-century free black preacher and teacher of all races John Chavis (ca. 1762-1838), the 37-acre City of Raleigh park was opened as a recreational spot for the city's African-American residents during segregation. It was dedicated in 1938, and the original 1937 carousel still can be ridden.
