Where in Carolina Country is This?
The September “Where Is This” photo by Wake Electric member Alejandro Guitierrez features E. Carroll Joyner Park at the end of a rainbow. The 117-acre park, located on Harris Road in Wake Forest, features several restored local farm buildings (including a mule barn, tobacco barn, chicken coop and a restored log cabin), a pecan grove planted during the Great Depression that is still managed and harvested, a lawn amphitheater, the Walker Garden (the Walker family owned the farm prior to the Joyners), a Monarch butterfly habitat, three miles of walking trails and picnic areas. Portions of the park are bordered by a 2,000-foot stone ribbon wall. The farm buildings are a local favorite for family photos and professional portraits. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Ron DeWitt of Wake Forest, a Wake Electric member.
