Herndon Park - Durham
Wasn't this weekend nice!? Did you get outside? I find now that when it hits in the low 50s we still head outside to play -- C and I need it. This led us to discover Herndon Park in Durham. Herndon Park isn't the biggest, but what I love about it is its location. It is 3.5 miles from Southpoint straight down Fayetteville Road. This means that we can get some outside play time in for C while we do our errands! It's great.
There are 2 play structures: 1 for older kids and 1 for younger. Both are new and in great shape.
The ground cover is mulch. Not a lot of natural shade over the play structures, but they do have roofs built in.
Herndon Park also has a lot of youth baseball fields (which can be closed for play if the conditions are wet) and soccer fields. In fact, this looks as though it is quite popular with league play as there is a concessions shelter (not open unless there is a special event). And even though we didn't get on the fields, C had a great time playing with the baseball statues out front.
It was nice that he was able to burn off some energy before we went (back) to Target.
