Blue Jay Point County Park is a 236-acre park that was once primarily agricultural land. A majority of this acreage is now second-growth forestlands. We have roughly three acres dedicated to open play fields, playgrounds, an environmental education center and an overnight lodge.

Blue Jay Point is a peninsula, bordered on three sides by Raleigh's primary drinking water supply, Falls Lake. The lake is a reservoir managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers. Park boundaries are marked by orange blazes on trees and with signs. All local, state and federal laws apply while inside the park. The park officially opened its gates to the public on January 1, 1992.

  • My friend's toddler had a school field trip (his first) to this cute park, which is somewhat near his school. We only got to see a limited part of the whole place, as we were on a timeline, but...

  • Blue Jay Point is a great park to bring your family and enjoy the outdoors. The trails are excellent for running or hiking, and the park is always working on a new experience for the kids. Right now, there is a story walk near the playground, and the education center is packed with information about helping our city and world. We're very happy with the freshly remodeled playground, that's only a year old. The people who maintain this park care about providing a great environment for fun, learning, and recreation
  • Loved this park, there is a lot to do and keeps kids busy. I also like the amount of areas to sit around the park. They have bathrooms and a nice trail that leads to the lake. We had fun for hours.
