The Save Hanes Park website is dedicated to presenting factual information surrounding a proposed stadium to serve RJ Reynolds High School. Its focus is building consensus around the historic Hanes Park property currently deeded to the WS/FC School system. Leadership for the stadium public project has been deferred to a school-associated private booster club that has benefitted from cooperation with the school system but is shielded from public process.
Our primary concern is the impact a stadium would have on Wiley school and our century-old historic downtown green space, Hanes Park. You can learn more about our Park’s rich history here.
Improvements are underway for Hanes Park that include fields and courts shared with R.J. Reynolds athletics. Developed through an open and transparent process involving our school board, small business owners, neighborhood representatives and private citizens, these upgrades have received wide community support and represent a notable success for WS/FCS planning in our downtown area.
