Durham Parks & Recreation (DPR)
Public Works Department
The purpose of this project is to upgrade the park so that it can better support events, festivals, and daily use. Although DPR hosts annual events at the Rock Quarry Park including the Bimbé Festival, Rock the Park Series, Latino Festival, and Canine Field Day, failing stormwater infrastructure, limited vehicular access, and poor asphalt conditions limit the site's ongoing use as a large-scale festival destination. The project design will address these issues. New park amenities include a stage platform with electrical service upgrades, an accessible path, a planted stormwater basin, water service, stream bank restoration and a new 12’ wide bridge and park entrance over Ellerbee Creek near the National Guard Armory.
