Durham Parks and Recreation
provides opportunities for the Durham
community to “Play More.” We strive to
help residents discover, explore and
enjoy life through creative and
challenging recreational choices that
contribute to their physical, emotional
and social health.
Note: The contractor for the Northgate stream project work identified several trees with low-hanging limbs that will need to be pruned to allow tall equipment to pass through. The contractor, Carolina Environmental Contracting, plans to start construction on the project the week of November 18. Learn more.
