Durham Central Park

From Sarah C.:

You won't find a playground at Durham Central Park, but don't let that deter you from a visit. It's home to the Durham Farmers Market which is open Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons (seasonal). Across the street in the main section, you will find a big grassy hill that is great for little ones to run up and roll down. There are also a couple of climbing sculptures (a turtle and a cardinal) and a big metal bridge to walk across.

Older kids and teenagers will enjoy the skate park. It's located at the very top of the hill with an amazing view of the park and downtown Durham. Personally, I prefer to keep both feet on the ground these days, but it looks very cool. Lots of ramps and obstacles you are encouraged to enjoy with your skateboard or inline skates. Remember to wear your helmet and knee and elbow pads for safety. They are required when using the park per City Code.

The park is host to a number of events throughout the year. Check the park website listed below for more details.

Looking for something else to do while in the area? The Scrap Exchange is located immediately adjacent to the park (unfortunately the Scrap Exchange has relocated as of June 2011).
