Newhall Park

The Haywood Knolls community’s common area, approximately two acres in size, was given to the Haywood Knolls Association in 1991 by the original developer Donald Thompson. The tennis courts in the park were built in 1981 when the first section of lots was released for sale in the subdivision.

Bordered on one side by Mill Creek, the common area also boasts a picnic area with tables and a several hundred foot trail around the tennis courts where many native North Carolina wildflowers can be seen growing in the Spring.


The common area was named Newhall Park in 1991 after Harvey Newhall, a Past President of the Haywood Knolls Association, for his legacy to the community. He always had a willing and enthusiastic hand in making life better for all the residents and encouraged others to do so as well. It is only fitting that Newhall Park bears his name for “service above and beyond.”

Haywood Knolls residents continue to maintain the park as a recreation area and a pleasant greeting to Haywood Knolls.
