A goal of city leaders is building a connection between two significant parks.

The Stroll in the Streets event on Sunday imagines this connection between John Chavis Memorial Park.

Chavis Park is a historic and newly renovated park in Southeast Raleigh. Dorothea Dix Park is a park building for the future.

From noon-5 p.m. Sunday, residents are invited to go along the route on Lenoir Street between the two parks.
