The Merschel Park project, nestled at the heart of Winston-Salem’s historic Pepper Building/Indigo Hotel, the future Hyatt Place, and the Kaleideum Children’s Museum, has left an indelible mark on the cityscape. The park, named in honor of the esteemed former Winston-Salem city council member, Wanda Merschel, has redefined Winston-Salem’s urban green spaces.

Merschel Park boasts an abundance of greenery and a metal sculpture garden, creating a serene oasis amidst the urban hustle. Shaded seating areas invite visitors to savor outdoor dining experiences in a tranquil atmosphere. What sets this project apart is its dedication to commemorating the significant contributions of women to the city’s civic life. Through carefully crafted features, Merschel Park celebrates the resilience of the women who have shaped Winston-Salem’s history.
