Durham Parks & Recreation (DPR)
Public Works Department
Project design will begin Fall 2018
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 Bimbe 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 failing stormwater infrastructure, accessibility issues, the addition of new park amenities; a stage platform, a vehicular/pedestrian bridge over Ellerbee Creek near the Armory, and a new dog park.
