As the first indoor space in Dix Park, the Greg Poole, Jr. All Faiths Chapel serves as a welcome and event center.
Built in 1955, the chapel’s mid-century modern architecture is well preserved with decorative wood elements, a rose stained-glass window, terrazzo floors, and mid-century stainless fixtures. Renovated in 2020 by the Dix Park Conservancy, the chapel now provides all the amenities of a modern community gathering space while retaining its historic charm.

As part of the renovation project, Dix Park Conservancy commissioned artwork honoring Dix Park's history for the chapel lobby with the intent of showcasing the breadth of the land's legacy and incorporate the significance of the chapel as a place of community, celebration, and remembrance.
North Carolina artist, Christopher Holt was chosen to create this artwork - a mural informed by the land’s legacy with a concept that speaks to themes of meditation, unity, and recognition. Learn more in our Chapel Mural Guide.
Overlooking downtown Raleigh, the Greg Poole, Jr. All Faiths Chapel is a unique venue in the heart of Dix Park available to host a variety of community and private events such as weddings, performances, fundraisers, family reunions, corporate events, and other gatherings.
The main hall has an open floor plan with an elevated stage. Amenities include tables and chairs, catering staging kitchen, two dressing areas, wi-fi, and audio visual capabilities.
