Blue Jay Point County Park is probably a well-kept secret among Falls of Neuse suburbanites and other folks on the outskirts of North Raleigh. To be honest, this is one of the few parks in the Triangle I know only from driving by. A good reason to visit this Saturday is that the park is celebrating its 20st anniversary with a big party.
According to the website, “This event is free, no preregistration is required, and all ages are welcome.” What more could you want? Well, maybe that it is a bit closer. It is about a 40 minute drive to the North of downtown. If you’re in North Raleigh, good, if you’re in South Raleigh or Cary, you may want to think twice. The Park is on 3200 Pleasant Union Church Road, which is off Six Forks.
