Washington Park is one of Winston-Salem’s oldest residential areas set in the steep hills south of Salem Creek.
     In 1892, the Winston-Salem Land and Investment Company -run by F.M. Simmons - invested in the development of a neighborhood centered around the street car line that ran south from Salem. 

A treasure of the neighborhood is its park.

Once known as Sunnyside Park and Southside Park, the original 17 acres of designated parkland now known as Washington Park have grown to more than 75 with shelters, walkways, ball fields, playgrounds, and a dog park.
   Today, the Washington Park neighborhood extends from the area south of the power station to north of Silas Creek Parkway, and between Main Street and Park Avenue.
   The area of the neighborhood least-altered from its original construction has been designated Historic Washington Park. Several of its structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
