Short and fun disc golf course with some surprising challenges. Love the covered basketball and tennis courts.

Nice range of facilities and not many people. But there is a lot of litter on the ground. Played disc golf there and the course is challenging for its size. Bring a putter, couple midranges and a fairway driver. Didnt see any water fountains.

The park is nice in that it offers so many things to do. From a basketball court to tennis, to a jogging/walking trail. To a playground, frisbee golf course and then one of those zipline obstacle courses. Its also pet friendly and I feel a dog park would be a welcomed addition if they added it. Also, I wish there were additional trails but it appears space is limited and you can't get much closer to the train tracks.

Park offers covered basketball courts that are in heavy use as well as covered tennis courts but my favorite attraction is the disc golf course which plays through the woods and walking trails. It's a short tight course with a mix of left and right hand favorable holes. Two novel baskets include the first even with the ground and the twelfth hole that plays to a hanging basket just shy of a creek. Fun course though it can be a bit muddy.

This is a small park for kids that can climb, there are only two swings, a climbing rock and tables. For older kids, there's a basketball court and a tennis court. The high ropes course is by appointment only.

Nice but short trails with a paved path for children's bikes, basketball court, fun but small playground, easily accessible bathrooms & water fountains, great frisbee golf course. Unfortunately they are doing some construction behind the path that detracts a little bit from the peace of being out in nature. Overall a really nice neighborhood park though.

Construction from the adjacent development has destroyed the ambience and enjoyment of the walking paths. They destroyed part of the walking path and frisbee golf course installing a sewer line that remains unfinished and a hazard.

Love that I was the only person here. I took my dog on the paved trail and it was short but decent. There’s construction everywhere. I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way to go here but there’s a lot of potential if the funding was there.

Will be 5 stars once they've finished reno. Covered hoops and tennis are wonderful!

Awesome to have a covered tennis/pickleball venue for rainy days; however, courts still get wet with heavy rain; lights don't come on during the day, so lighting is poor on gray days; courts often with a bit a debris, so a blower is a good idea

This park feels a bit out of the blue, but the walking paths are nice and the covered tennis court and basketball court are awesome. I don't know if I have seem anything similar at another park anywhere. Definitely rare amenities.

Interesting underutilized park. Lots of potential hope it gets more funding and upgrades. Great place to put a dog park🤞

1 covered basketball court, 2 covered tennis courts playground and other amenities. 18 hole disc golf course is fun but not well maintained. 1 hole is usually very muddy and another's tee box is missing.

Frisbee golf course is in rough shape and can be difficult to find the tee boxes. Otherwise, the covered tennis/basketball courts are amazing!

Cute lil park - it has a disc golf course that's not very well maintained. A lot of construction going on but it has a small path for walking. Watch for snakes - there's at least one copperhead out there. It's a bit of a wild forest 🤣

The park is nice and has a disc golf course which was the main reason we visited it. It’s not ideal to visit when the weather is very muggy and humid because the bugs are too much to deal with.

I'm just rating it based on the disc golf course. Challenging to play but not necessarily in a good way. It was tough to find some tee boxes, compared with the 2 other courses I've played on the triangle. Holes were short on average.

Great course at a quiet park area in a neighborhood. Short and wooded, it’s excellent for honing that driving putter and midrange game. Not much signage and mostly natural tees but it’s fairly broken in so not too hard to find the next tee.

Love this park. Great shorter, easier disk golf course that's usually not very crowded.

I would give 5 stars but the disc golf course is tight, wooded and its a short course. The rec center looks nice and kept up, it has a basketball ball court and a tennis court both covered. The climbing towers are off limits to non members, which sucks cause they look fun. All in all its a nice facility.

Well maintained tennis courts times two, covered and lit until 9:30 at night. Same with basketball courts. Short 18 hole disc golf course is very good, but can be a little difficult to follow hole 11. Kudos to Durham parks and rec for this one

The sign for basket #1 was knocked down (We found it in the weeds and put it back up) and a lot of the course markings have been removed and/or vandalized. The second picture is where you go for the tee box on basket #2. Overall, great beginner course with mild difficulty. Would recommend other courses prior to this course, but it has potential.

Nice short disc golf course through the woods. Also have some covered basketball and tennis courts to use during any weather. Great park with a cool walking trail in the woods as well.

It's a very nice quiet Park You can hear the children. Or inner children playing basketball and tennis no loud music no profanity. It's just a wonderful place to go for a walk or to take your children to play.

My wife and I come here to use the pickle ball courts. The facility seems to be pretty well maintained and the courts are covered which is nice for hot or rainy days. They have 6 marked pickle ball courts on top of existing tennis courts.

We dropped by to have a picnic lunch and use the restrooms. We found there to be an adequate number of picnic tables on the playground are as well as a clean and solar lighted toilet. Not much shade in these areas and very, very hot in the summer.
