Prescribed Burn at Lake Johnson Greenway

The City of Raleigh in partnership with the NC Forest Service is expected to perform a controlled burn at Lake Johnson Greenway Loop in early May, subject to weather conditions. 

Please expect temporary trail closures near operations until the burn is complete. Park staff are aware of the fire and smoke, please do not contact emergency services. 

Raleigh Parks utilizes prescribed burns as a way to manage the park's natural resources. 

  • Please be aware that fire management staff will be active on site.
  • Some areas may be temporarily closed.
  • Smoke will be concentrated in the areas closest to the burn and will dissipate quickly. Smoke may temporarily create poor air quality conditions that could be challenging for those with asthma or other respiratory issues. It is recommended that visitors keep a safe distance from burn operations.

 Learn more about prescribed burns in Raleigh Parks.
