Save Hanes Park

Why you should sign this petition:

Hanes Park, an oasis in the heart of Winston-Salem, is threatened by a proposal to build a 4,500-seat high school football stadium on the park side of Wiley Middle School property. The stadium would be surrounded by 1,700 feet of fence and walls, some at least 35 feet high. Included in the proposal are a parking lot and new roads in sensitive natural areas. This proposal makes use of private and public funds. To learn more and join our mailing list visit

We, the citizens of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, petition the WSFCS Board of Education ("School Board") to vote against construction of a stadium adjacent to Hanes Park.  The controversial proposal will cause harm to Hanes Park, to surrounding neighborhoods, and to emergency vehicle routes.  The School Board's construction of a new gym, relocation of school bus parking lots, and operation of the stadium will incur unnecessary and significant costs to WSFCS and therefore to us as taxpayers.  These funds are better spent on academic affairs and on upkeep and operation of existing athletic facilities
