Park Renovations

Garrett Road Park Tennis Court Renovation

Beginning Wednesday, May 24, the tennis courts at Garrett Road Park will be closed for renovations. The tennis courts are anticipated to reopen mid-October (weather dependent).


Burton Park Basketball Court

One of the two basketball courts at Burton Park (1100 Sima Ave.) is unavailable for play until further notice due to stream erosion issues.

The erosion was identified by Durham Parks and Recreation’s (DPR) maintenance staff during a park convergence.  The purpose of the convergence was to identify and repair maintenance issues in the park from vegetation management to touching up paint.

During the convergence, the park maintenance team identified a safety hazard on one of the two basketball courts at Burton Park. The stream eroded one of the courts making it unsafe and playable for patrons. The court will be closed and unavailable for play until the repairs are made.

Until repairs are complete, patrons can use the other basketball court at the park which will receive minor updates in the coming weeks. DPR encourages park users to be mindful of the signs and stay clear of the affected area. Please report any safety and playability hazards to DPR.
