About

Named after Abner Nash, the second governor of North Carolina, the lush landscape of Nash Square contains a lawn, a variety of perennials, and many native shade trees. Four additional paths act as the main entrances to the park, bisecting each of the sidewalks bordering the square along Dawson, Hargett, McDowell, and Martin Streets. Its present landscape design, implemented with Works Progress Administration funds, dates from 1940.
